Join Us For Our Upcoming Shows:

In the Heat of the Night

Adapted for stage by Matt Palfrey. Directed by Yolanda Franklin, Produced by Mark Henry.

It’s 1962 and a hot August night lies heavy over the small town of Argo, Alabama. A dead white man is discovered and the local police arrest a black stranger named Virgil Tibbs. The police discover that their prime suspect is in fact a homicide detective from California. But Tibbs becomes the racially tense community’s hope in solving a brutal murder that is turning up no witnesses, no motives and no clues.

Running May 6 – 22, 2022. Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm., Sundays at 3pm
