Shrek the Musical-Wildcard members claim seats now! Ushers needed.

Tupelo Community Theatre will present Shrek the Musical, with music by
Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire On April 28, 29
and 30 at 7:30 p.m. and a matinee at 2 p.m on the 30th .  The production,
based on the Oscar winning DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture and book by
William Steig, brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to
life on stage and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.
Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring
all new songs.   “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

Tickets for Deathtrap

TCT is excited to announce tickets for the murder mystery Deathtrap are available for you to purchase.  

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  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!
