There’s a lot to love about Milledgeville. The historic homes, beautiful lakes and rivers, fun events and great people make our little city unique! But, our theater programs are a force to be reckoned with! With two colleges in town and tons of local Milledgevillians loving the theater business, you won’t be bored at any of their productions!
This program is a local theater troupe created for the Milledgeville residents to expand their love for the theater. With productions such as Oklahoma!, Kiss Me Kate, South Pacific, and Guys and Dolls, this troupe is full of talented people! They also put on the Haunted Trolley Tour hosted by the Convention & Visitors Bureau every October! Wondering what they have coming up soon? Starting April 1, the Milledgeville Players will be putting on a Murder Mystery called “A Deadly Incentive.” This fun night includes dinner and will have two showings, April 1 and 2. The cost to participate is $27 and tickets must be ordered in advance! While costumes aren’t required, it will definitely help set the mood of the performance. The Milledgeville Players is full of talent that is just waiting to be seen by you!
