Best known for his starring role in the ’80s hit television series The Dukes of Hazzard, Tom Wopat is a multi-faceted entertainer who has enjoyed a career on stage and screen as well. From his high visibility Broadway roles in 1999’s Annie Get Your Gun and 2008’s A Catered Affair (he received Tony Award nominations for both), as well as Chicago, Forty-Second St., Sondheim on Sondheim and more to his latest album, I’ve Got Your Number, all it takes is a phrase or two from Tom Wopat’s warm, engaging baritone to trigger the desire to hear more. And the more one listens, the better it gets — from the way he finds the heart of a song’s story to his lyrical phrasing and his gently swinging, jazz-infused rhythms. “Tom Wopat, like Sinatra in his glory days, makes it all look easy and perfectly natural.” -Stephen Holden / NY Times

The Dark Crystal (PG)

alt

FSFX Artie
Presented by Keesler Federal Credit Union
The Dark Crystal (PG)  alt
Presented with support from Visit Mississippi and Dirt Cheap
Tickets at door (Advance tickets recommended)

Jim Henson’s classic, The Dark Crystal, takes place on another planet in the distant past, where a Gelfling embarks on a quest to find the missing shard of a magical crystal, and so restore order to his world.

Parents need to know that The Dark Crystal, although a Jim Henson puppet creature feature, is no Muppet Movie. Instead, it takes place in a dangerous otherworld where dark forces have taken over, and human-like beings called gelflings are rounded up, strapped to chairs with big needles, and drained of their "essence" for decrepit, dinosaur-like skeksis (pretty scary creatures, but also big buffoons). This movie isn't for everyone, and surely not for sensitive little ones under 7, but for the right kid just getting into fantasy books, this will rock their world.

alt

FSFX Artie
Presented by Keesler Federal Credit Union
In partnership with Dirt Cheap
The Muppet Movie (G) alt
Presented with support of Visit Mississippi and Dirt Cheap
Tickets at door (Advance tickets recommended)

The Muppet Movie was the first of a series of live-action musical feature films starring the Muppets. The classic film is a movie-in-a-movie, as we see Kermit the Frog and the rest of the Muppets gathering for the first screening of "The Muppet Movie." Kermit notes to his nephew Robin as the lights dim that the movie is a somewhat fictionalized account of the true story of how the Muppets first got together.

Parents need to know that the G-rated The Muppet Movie is a pretty likeable road trip romp with singable songs, but with some guns and slapstick violence. Throughout the movie Kermit is being pursued by men with guns and a couple shots are fired. Miss Piggy and Kermit are captured, Kermit almost gets his "brains scrambled" in a crazy electrical machine, and there's a final stand-off with guns drawn. But the Muppets always get away from the bad guys in a fun way (thanks to Miss Piggy's karate chops). There's some drinking -- Miss Piggy and Kermit drink wine with straws -- and minor characters smoke cigars.
