“CT-A has been working hard to provide quality arts and entertainment to the public. Cindi Bullard from our board of directors thought that a meet-and-greet with Shores would be an excellent way of achieving that,” said CT-A Artistic Director Cris Skinner. “So, she contacted him with the idea of doing it and was successful in her attempts.”
“She has been instrumental in putting this all together,” added Skinner.
The price is $50 per person and includes V.I.P seating as well as an exclusive wine-and-cheese reception after the show with Shores.
“The price is great because it would be what you would expect to pay for a meal and a show if you went to Tupelo,” said Skinner. “It is an affordable way to meet and speak with the playwright while supporting the arts in your community.”
Shores is best known as a writer and producer for television series such as “Queer as Folk,” “Dharma & Greg,” “Touched by an Angel,” “Ned and Stacy” and “Maximum Bob."
His acclaimed comedy “Sordid” lives, which debuted in Los Angeles in 1996, was recently performed at the CT-A playhouse.
“I am so excited to be performing with the “Sordid Lives” cast of Corinth Theatre-Arts,” wrote acclaimed Playwright Del Shores Monday on his Facebook fan page. “Get your tickets and show me some MS love.”
General admission to the show is also available for $20. Reservations can be made by calling CT-A at 662-287-2995 or by stopping by the theatre at 303 S. Fulton Drive from 1 to 6 p.m. Tuesday thru Friday.
The stand-up comic will make his debut to the CT-A Stage at 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 14.
