MCC presents The Red Rose'
Meridian Community College's Arts &Letters Series will delight audience young, and young at heart, with the New Stage Theatre production of "The Red Rose," scheduled for Thursday.
The curtain is 7:30 p.m. in Ivy Hall's McCain Theater. Tickets are $5, adults; $3, students.
New Stage, Mississippi's only resident professional theater, will present its intern company in this classic story. The story begins when an enchanted monster lures a beautiful girl to his castle.
After some pleading, the monster agrees to let the girl go home to visit her family for a week, but he warns her that if she does not return by the seventh day, her father will die. Will she come back? Will the monster die of loneliness? Can a beautiful girl ever learn to love a hideous monster? "The Red Rose" provides all the answers.
Now in its 35th year, New Stage produces a full professional season, including five mainstage shows in the subscription series, a Christmas show, children's shows and selections in the Eudora Welty New Plays Series.
New Stage received the Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts in 1995 for its efforts to introduce tens of thousands of young Mississippians to live theater.
For ticket information for The Red Rose, contact Michele Thames, 484-8696.
The "Prime Meridian" cookbook goes on sale Monday at the Lamar School Cafetorium, starting at 9 a.m.
