Leading Ladies at Main Street Theatre Works in Jackson
Through Saturday, July 20, Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre, $12-$20
Some days you just need to take a ride and catch some theater near a former gold mine. If you’re feeling that urge, consider looking no further than the Main Street Theatre Works production of Leading Ladies. It’s the age-old story of two washed-up thespians in money trouble who end up conning an elderly rich woman by pretending to be her nieces. The Ken Ludwig-written, Allen Pontes-directed work contains, as you might have guessed, some cross-dressing and plenty of laughs. To boot, it takes place in the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre and marks the 25th season of the production company putting on productions. Make a trip of it and join in the fun. 1127 North Main Street in Jackson, mstw.org/tickets.
