  • "The Play That Goes Wrong" begins to unravel before it even gets started. The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society is presenting their new production, Murder at Haversham Manor. Unfortunately, the set has not been completed by opening date, and there is no time to do so. This is not to say that they are not continuing to try as the auditorium is filling with an audience! Indeed, with a moving corpse, disappearing props, missing actors, and collapsing pieces and such, mayhem is rolling amuck!! Situations on stage get quite dangerous, the “not so seasoned” acting of unseasoned actors begins to really come through, and ongoing production struggles continue as they try to save their production. This show will run May 24-June 2. For tickets, visit https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/ipaltheater/6446.

  • On May 9, 2024, the UL Lafayette College of the Arts is hosting a screening in the ULL LITE center of "In a Good Place Now: The Life & Music of Bobby Charles", a feature-length documentary exploring the life and music of Bobby Charles, the singer/songwriter from Abbeville, Louisiana. Charles rose to fame in the 1950s with such hits as "See You Later Alligator", "Walking to New Orleans" and "But I Do" through his appearance in "The Last Waltz" and then his self-imposed exile to his small town. Produced by the Bobby Charles Trust, LLC, and Directed by David Dubos.
  • From writers Caroline Helm Huval and Dr. Bonny McDonald and directed by Christy Leichty, Ms. Warbucks is a musical adapted from Harold Gray’s Little Orphan Annie cartoon. Annie is all grown up, and we witness her relationship with former orphanage director, Ms. Agatha who is in a nursing home. She goes by “Ms. Warbucks” now. Quirky and thought provoking, this play brings into question the meaning of family and belonging. This production will run June 6th -8th at the Acadiana Center for the Arts.
