The Little Mermaid

The Little Mermaid

September 30th at 2:00 p.m.

Daugherty’s adaptation of the classic story by Hans Christen Andersen brings the tale of the young mermaid who longs for the surface above to the stage. A favorite throughout the world, this production is sure to be a visual fest for the eyes as we bring the world beneath the ocean to life.

A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas

A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas

November 16th, 17th, and 18th at 7:30 p.m.
November 19th at 2:00 p.m.

This theatrical and spirited version of A Christmas Carol puts the ghostly qualities of Charles Dickens’ classic tale center stage. A swirl- ing, dancing chorus of ghost weaves throughout this uplifting holiday story of redemption, magic, and hope.

The Little Mermaid

Crimes of the Heart

February 15th, 16th, and 17th at 7:30 p.m.

Family—southern style. Set in Hazlehurst, Mississippi, the three Magrath sisters gather to deal with family and relationship problems. One sister never had a man she’s loved, another just left the one she had, and the third, well, she just shot one. This acclaimed and award-winning dramedy by Mississippi native Beth Henley “has heart, wit and a surprisingly zany passion that must carry all before it...it would certainly be a crime for anyone...not to see this play.”

Noises Off

Noises Off

April 19th, 20th, and 21st at 7:30 p.m.
*recommended for mature audiences only

It was never going to be easy staging a bedroom farce on tour with a mediocre cast, but this is complete pandemonium! Called “the funniest farce ever written,” Michael Frayn’s uproarious play-within-a-play follows the on- and off-stage antics of the actors and the crew as they blunder from an ominously bad dress rehearsal to a spectacularly disastrous performance.
