The Marvelous Wonderettes
August 23-25, 2018 • Created by Roger Bean
The Marvelous Wonderettes takes a cotton candy-colored musical trip down memory lane to the 1958
Springfield High School prom where we meet The Wonderettes – four girls with hopes and dreams as big
as their crinoline skirts. The show follows their lives and loves from prom night to their 10-year reunion. The score has more than 20 chart-busting hits such as “Dream Lover,” “Lollipop,” and “It’s My Party” that will have you tapping your foot and wanting to sing along.

The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe
December 6-8, 2018 • Dramatized by Joseph Robinette from the story by C.S. Lewis
This dramatization of C.S. Lewis’ classic novel set in the land of Narnia, recreates the magic and mystery of the great lion Aslan and his struggle with the White Witch, and the adventures of Peter, Susan, Lucy, and Edmund. A story of love, faith, courage and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe is a true celebration of life.

The Glitter Girls
January 24-26, 2019 • By Mark Dunn
Join us for the Mississippi premier of Mississippi native Mark Dunn’s latest comedy, The Glitter Girls.
This southern comedy takes the audience through a specially called meeting of a north Georgia social
club called “The Glitter Girls.” The club’s richest member, Trudy Tromaine (who is at death’s door)
convenes the meeting to express her wishes to bequeath some of her millions to one lucky “Sister of
the Gleam and Sparkle.”

A Time to Kill
March 7-9, 2019 • Adapted for the stage by Rupert Holmes from the book by John Grisham
Carl Lee Hailey is on trial for shooting two men in the very courtroom where he now stands trial. His
attorney Jake Brigance is willing to risk everything to defend his client’s life. As the trial heats up, the community is torn apart in this gripping adaptation of John Grisham’s incendiary novel about race, crime, and family in small-town America that asks the question: when is it right to take justice into your own hands?

The Addams Family
April 25-27, 2019 • Book by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice • Music & lyrics by Andrew Lippa
A fresh, new musical about love, family, honesty and growing up. Featuring America’s darkest and
quirkiest family, The Addams Family must deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other
family – their kids are growing up. Their dark, macabre, beloved daughter Wednesday is now a young
woman who has fallen in love with a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable Ohio family. And
she has invited his family to their home for dinner. In one fateful hilarious night, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid for generations – change.
