The Harbor Lights Theater Company has announced plans to present special Mother's Day performances of Driving Miss Daisy, which runs from May 9-18 at the Music Hall at Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Gardens.

Antique cars from the Staten Island Region Antique Automobile Club of America will be on display from noon until the 2pm matinee on Mother's Day outside the play's venue. Patrons will be invited to have their photos taken "Driving Miss Daisy Style" in front of the antique cars, one of which is a four-door Dodge sedan from 1948 — the same year as Driving Miss Daisy's Hudson Commodore. There will also be champagne and sweets at the 7pm performance. Daisies will be given to mothers at both shows.

"One of the themes of the play examines the changing relationship between parent and child as they both age," said Co-Artistic Director Jay Montgomery in a statement. "It's perfect for a Mother's Day treat."
