BroadwayWorld.com, the largest theatre site on the Internet, is excited to announce a new feature to its comprehensive regional coverage - the Featured Regional Theater of the Week! Each week, BWW will introduce its readers to a regional theater located in one of our (over 130!) coverage cities. By exploring these different venues, their history and showcasing the production seasons, BWW continues its commitment to expand our presence in communities and cities across the United States.
This Week's Featured Regional Theater: Biloxi Little Theatre in Biloxi, MS
Located in east Biloxi, The Playhouse is a historic building at 220 Lee Street, south of the Biloxi Kroc Center and north of the Deer Island cut. Parts of the building date to the 1920s. Amenities including handicapped parking and accessibility, dual air conditioning and heating, and lighted and patrolled parking areas.
Hurricane Katrina devastated the district and the theatre was seriously damaged. A major renovation was led by Judy Madden, and included a new interior design by local artist Jerry Lee Scott. Improvements are on-going.
The arts are what make your community an interesting place to live, and Biloxi Little Theatre has been a part of the local arts scene since 1946. For sixteen years they've offered summer teen shows; now they're moving into programs for younger children; and they're always ready to take a shot at something new. There are opportunities to work back stage, volunteer in the lobby, or audition for a part in a production.
