Wild Card tickets for Deathtrap

TCT is excited to announce wildcard tickets for the murder mystery Deathtrap will be available for you to claim beginning January 4th.

Comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a dry spell which has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college—a thriller that Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway smash. Sidney’s plan, devised with his wife’s help, is to offer collaboration to the student for co-credit. Or is it? DEATHTRAP provides twists and turns of devilish cleverness, and offers hilariously sudden shocks in such abundance that audiences will be spellbound until the very last moment.

Production dates for the show are January 27-29 at 7:30 p.m. and the 29th at 2 p.m. at the Lyric.  Tickets will go on sale to the public on Monday, January 17th and are $20 for adults and $10 for students and younger.  To reserve your seats for the performance, call the TCT office at 662-844-1935 Monday-Friday 9 a.m.– 3 p.m.  See you at the Lyric soon!

Auditions for Shrek the Musical

Tupelo Community Theatre will hold auditions for Shrek the Musical, based on the DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture, book by William Steig, music by Jeanine Tesori  and musical book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire.  Adults ages 18 and older will audition on Sunday, February 13 at 2 p.m. and Tuesday, February 15 at 6 p.m. at St James Catholic Church Family Life Center, 1911 N.

Everyone’s favorite ogre closes out the TCT season with this hilarious stage version of the musical based on the Oscar-winning, smash hit film.  “Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek…” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue.  Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero.  Luckily, there’s one on hand….and his name is Shrek.  Irreverently fun for the whole family, Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.

The cast consists primarily of adults age eighteen and older, with 3-4 minor roles for children ages 8-14. Dancers and ensemble ages 15-17 will be selected as needed.
