The Lakeland Chamber of Commerce's annual meeting tomorrow will get a little more entertaining when Harrison School for the Arts performs a musical about Publix and its owner.

Titled When You Dream, the musical will start with the story of founder George W. Jenkins and his journey to becoming the owner of the locally based grocery chain recently ranked No. 1 in Fortune magazine.

The choir will sing original songs by teacher Tyler Campbell in an effort to inspire and entertain those at the annual meeting. Publix also lent a helping hand by donating props.

The meeting and performance will take place at RP Funding Center at 5:15 p.m. Tickets to see When You Dream can be purchased here.
