Monty Python’s Spamalot Tickets

Thanks to our wonderful patrons and members for your support during this difficult time.  TCT will present Monty Python’s Spamalot on August 13-15 at 7:30 and a matinee at 2 p.m. on the 15th.  In preparation for your return to the historic Lyric Theatre it will be hydrostatically disinfected before each performance to better protect you, our actors and our volunteers.

Due to social distance rules our seating will be cut to about one third and it will be unlikely that most will be able to be seated in their normal locations.  Every other row will be completely empty with 6 feet between each group of patrons.  We will not use an orchestra pit due to safety concerns.

Please use the schedule below to claim your seats by calling Lisa in the TCT box office 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday-Friday at 662-844-1935

Monday July 6th Stage Angel and Executive Producer patrons

Tuesday July 7th and Wednesday 8th Producer and Director patrons

Thursday July 9th, Friday July 10th  and Monday July 13th Star patrons

Additional performances  may be added depending on ticket demand.  Also, please call us if you do not plan to claim your seats.  You do not have to attend on the day of your original tickets.

We are working hard to bring live theatre to our community and look forward to seeing you again.  Additional information may be announced closer to performance dates but following current Tupelo regulations you must wear a mask as you enter, exit and anytime you are not seated. Feel free to contact us for additional information and thanks again for your support.

 

 

Hold on, we’ll be back soon!

Auditions for Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

Tupelo Community Theatre will hold auditions for Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang as soon as possible. This winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play deals with middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia, who  share their deceased parents’ home in Bucks County, PA.  The two bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives when their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness worries the imperious Masha.  The siblings (1 man and 2 women) should be able to play characters between 40 and 65 years of age.  Cassandra can be any age.  Spike’s character is in his 20’s or 30’s and must feel comfortable on stage in a speedo swim suit.  Nina’s character is in her 20’s or 30’s as well.  Lynn Nelson will direct. For more information contact the director at lynn_nelson@hotmail.com or contact the TCT office at 662-844-1935.
