Christmas Belles Holiday Production

Tupelo Community Theatre will present its holiday production, Christmas Belles by Jamie Wooten, Jessie Jones, and Nicholas Hope, December 8, 9, and 10 at 7:30 p.m. each evening and a matinee on the 10th at 2 p.m. at the Lyric Theatre at 201 N. Broadway in Downtown Tupelo.  

It’s Christmas-time in the small town of Fayro, Texas, and the Futrelle Sisters–Frankie, Twink and Honey Raye–are not exactly in a festive mood. A church Christmas program spins hilariously out of control in this southern farce about squabbling sisters, family secrets, a surly Santa, a vengeful sheep and a reluctant Elvis impersonator. 

Season members may purchase additional seats or claim Wildcard tickets now.   Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for students and go on sale on November 21st by calling the TCT office at 662-844-1935

Auditions for Tea for Three: Lady Bird, Pat & Betty

Tupelo Community Theatre will hold auditions for Tea for Three: Lady Bird, Pat and Betty on Monday, November 14, and Tuesday, November 15 at 6:00 PM each evening at the Lyric Theatre at 201 N. Broadway in Downtown Tupelo. The show calls for three women who can portray the three First Ladies between the ages of 50 and 65. No advance preparation is needed.

 What is it like for a woman when her husband becomes the president of the United States—and she is suddenly thrust into the spotlight? This witty, sly, and deeply moving script explores the hopes, fears, and loves of Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon, and Betty Ford. In three scenes taking place in the family quarters of the White House just prior to the end of living there as the wife of a president, each of the women confides alone to the audience. Each of the three portraits becomes intimate, by degrees, as the women wrestle with what Pat Nixon called “the hardest unpaid job in the world.”

 Production dates for Tea for Three are January 26-28, 2023, at 7:30 each evening and on January 28 at 2:00 in the afternoon. Rehearsals will begin in early December. For more information, call TCT at 662-844-1935 or contact the director, Bobby Geno, at robertgeno@comcast.net.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Auditions for actor/participants will be Friday, October 7th at 5:30 at TCT Off Broadway, 213 East Franklin Street.   No experience necessary but those cast will be asked to dress as the characters from the movie with multiple roles for men and women.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a 1975 British-American musical screwball comedy horror film which is based on the 1973 musical stage production of the same title. The production is a parody tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the 1930s through to the early 1970s. The film stars Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, and Barry Bostwick. The story centers on a young engaged couple whose car breaks down in the rain near a castle where they seek a telephone to call for help. The castle is occupied by strangers in elaborate costumes celebrating an annual convention. They discover the head of the house is Dr. Frank N Furter, an apparent mad scientist who actually is an alien who creates a living man in his laboratory.

Tickets for the October 31st event are on sale.  Only 100 will be sold, adults $25, no one under the age of 18. Doors open an hour before the show and a cash bar will be available.
