Tupelo Community Theatre Presents A TIME TO KILL
Tupelo Community Theatre will present A Time To Kill, adapted for the stage by Rupert Holmes, March 7-9 at 7:30 p.m. and March 9 at 2 p.m. at the Lyric Theatre. This riveting drama tells the story of Carl Lee Hailey, who shoots two men in the very courthouse where he now stands trial. Defense attorney Jake Brigance sees Hailey's act of vengeance against the racist men's attack on his daughter as a desperate bid for justice and he's willing to risk everything to defend his client's life. As the trial heats up, the community is torn apart in this gripping adaptation of Mississippi native John Grisham's best-selling novel about race, crime, and family in small-town America. The play is rated R for adult language and incendiary dialogue about race that some patrons may find offensive. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students and go on sale at Noon on February 25 by calling the TCT box office at 844-1935.
Tupelo Community Theatre will hold auditions for The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Robert Kauzlaric, Paul Gilvary, and William Rush on March 25th and 26th at 6 p.m. at TCT Off Broadway 213 East Franklin Street.
Every story has two sides and when the Big, Bad Wolf takes the stand in Piggsylvania's Trial of the Century, he finally gets his say. This youth cast includes anyone 11 to 14 years old and everyone auditioning should be able to sing but no advance preparation required. Marley Maharrey will direct. Production dates for the show are May 16-18.
