Puffs at TCT Off Broadway

Tupelo Community Theatre will present  Puffs by Matt Cox February 13-15 at 7:30 p.m. at TCT Off Broadway 213 East Franklin Street in downtown Tupelo.  For seven years a certain boy wizard went to a certain Wizard School and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs… who just happened to be there too. A tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world.  This clever and inventive play never goes more than a minute without a laugh giving you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three potential heroes just trying to make it through a magic school that proves to be very dangerous for children. Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal outsiders with a thing for badgers who are so lovable and relatable, you’ll leave the theater wishing they were in the stories all along. Their hilariously heartfelt and epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be.  The New York Times proclaims PUFFS, “A FAST-PACED ROMP through the ‘Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic.’

The play is contains language some patrons may find offensive and is recommended for age 14 and older.   Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students or younger and may be reserved by calling the TCT office at 662-844-1935

Auditions for Monty Python’s Spamalot


Tupelo Community Theatre will hold auditions for Monty Python’s Spamalot on Sunday, January 26 at 2 p.m. and Monday, January 27th at 6 p.m. in the rehearsal hall of the Lyric Theatre in downtown Tupelo. 

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful showgirls? The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs. The outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.”  

Those auditioning should be adults at least 18 years of age.  Men’s roles range up to 60 years of age and women up to age 50.  Those auditioning should be prepared to read  from the script and sing.  Email 1tct@bellsouth.net for the music beginning Monday, January 13th.  

Christi Houin will direct and production dates for the show are April 23-25, 2020.  
For more information contact the director at 662-891-3157 or call the TCT office at 662-844-1935.

Moon Over Buffalo Auditions

This show is a raucous farce about a dysfunctional theatre troupe at the Erlander Theatre in Buffalo, New York, in 1953. The troupe winds its way through a tangle of confusion to produce a misbegotten mixture of two plays at the same time. The show is filled with laughter and slapstick comedy. The cast is composed of 4 females: 2 – ages 20-30; 1 – age 45-55; and 1 – age 70+ and 4 males: 2 – ages 20-30 and 2 ages 45-55. Some of the male roles involve quite a bit of physicality and staged combat. No advanced preparation is required. Production dates are March 5, 6, and 7, 2020 with rehearsals beginning on January 26, 2020. For more information, call 662-844-1935 or email the director, Bobby Geno, at robertgeno@comcast.net
