Murphys Creek Theatre
2020 Season Lineup
Steel Magnolias More06/12/2020 – 07/05/2020
Everyone’s welcome in Truvy’s Beauty Salon, where the only thing that separates women from animals is their ability to accessorize! Celebrate the life-affirming power of friendship with six of the most lovable and madcap women in the Deep South. Based on a true story, this touching and timeless play is as funny as it is heartbreaking. Through thick and thin, these women huddle together, demonstrating a strength and courage that we all strive for, epitomizing the very nature of a “Steel Magnolia.”
King Lear More09/18/2020 – 10/18/2020
MCT finally takes on Shakespeare’s towering tale of love, lies and loss. A story for all time and a story for our time. Aging Lear is determined to save his country from civil war upon his death, but his efforts throw it into corruption and chaos. A chilling story of the pursuit of power at any cost, and the personal saga of a man slowly stripped away – stripped of grandeur, stripped of strength, stripped of loyalty, stripped of beliefs. Is there something left when you have nothing? Directed by Robbie Allen with a stellar cast led by Don Bilotti as King Lear.
Every Christmas Story Ever Told More11/20/2020 – 12/13/2020
Get ready for high octane jollity and wacky festive frivolity as MCT brings Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and Then Some!) to Murphys! Not just another annual production of A Christmas Carol, but a (slightly irreverent) look at all our favorite “beloved holiday classics”. So, tuck some mistletoe behind your ear and join us as we bring you “It’s a Wonderful Life”, “Frosty”, “Rudolph” and more…all in one wild production! Whether you’ve been “Naughty” or “Nice” this year, you’re guaranteed to leave with laughs, and (perhaps) a little bit of holiday wisdom.
