Julius Caesar Opens Tonight!

Julius Caesar opens tonight at the Uptown Theatre in Mt Vernon’s First Street Community Center!  Tickets for tonight’s show are still available in-person tonight in the lobby, so just stop on by.  If you purchased tickets in advance, we will have a list with your name on it and how many tickets you ordered in advance.  If you are wanting tickets for a future date–you can still order then in advance online (we take the online ordering down the morning of the show date in order to put together the list) or you can stop by the lobby before the show starts and purchase tickets in person.

Hope to see you there!

MVLCT Presents – Twelfth Night

Twelfth Night Promo

Twins separated at sea!  Cross-dressing!  Servants and fools in charge!  No one knows how to stage an Upstairs, Downstairs kind of dramedy like William Shakespeare.   Mt.

Vernon in 2012.)  A cast and crew of dedicated artists and actors from throughout the cultural corridor will perform at the Uptown Theatre in the First Street Community Center, 221 1st St., Mt. Vernon on July 21-23 at 7:30 PM and on July 24 at 2 PM.  Tickets are $12 and may be reserved by calling 319-535-2030.
