The Bald Soprano 

April 16 - 19

A hilarious, unique satire on the ordinary English middle class, in which "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" talk to each other at cross purposes, while their guests, "Mr. and Mrs. Martin" fail to understand, and the Maid and a Fire Chief enter the absurd fray, getting nowhere at all...

American Idiot 

May 7-10

The two-time Tony Award-winning hit musical Green Day's American Idiot, based on the Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, boldly takes the American musical where it's never gone before. This high-octane show includes every song from Green Day's album, American Idiot, as well as several songs from its follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown.
Johnny, Tunny and Will struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. When the three disgruntled men flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life, their paths are quickly estranged when Tunny enters the armed forces, Will is called back home to attend to familial responsibilities, and Johnny's attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship. An energy-fueled rock opera, American Idiot, features little dialogue and instead relies on the lyrics from Green Day's groundbreaking album to execute the story line.

Directed by Shelley Cooper

Broadway Bound

Presented by the Mississippi Bend Players

June 19-28

Broadway Bound is the funny yet poignant conclusion to Neil Simon’s semi-autobiographical trilogy which began with Brighton Beach Memoirs and Biloxi Blues. Reuniting the original Mississippi Bend Players cast, this installment finds Eugene and his brother Stanley busily try-ing to break into show business as professional comedy writers. When their material is broadcast for the first time, triumph turns into tribulation when the Jerome family realizes the boys’ sketch is essentially a mockery of their real lives.

Directed by Cory Johnson

Ruthless! The Musical

Presented by the Mississippi Bend Players

The stage mother of all musicals, Ruthless! the Musical is serving spoofy, campy fun. Tina is an eight-year old willing to do ANYTHING to be a star and with an agent like Sylvia St. Croix, she  just might hit the big time… or will she end up doing hard time? The outrageous laughs and  ridiculous twists just keep coming in this Gypsy meets Sweeney Todd musical romp.
