The Legend of Georgia McBride
December 1 - December 17, 2017
Kalita Humphreys Theater

Uptown Players continues its season with the regional premiere of the 2015 Off-Broadway hit comedy The Legend of Georgia McBride, starring Kyle Igneczi in the title role. After years of struggling at a small-time club in the Florida Panhandle, Casey (Igneczi) realizes it’s now or never for his career as an Elvis impersonator. He’s young, he’s broke, his landlord’s knocking at the door, and he’s just found out his wife is going to have a baby. Enter Miss Tracy Mills, a self-proclaimed grande dame of drag who guarantees Casey’s life is about to get “all shook up.” Matthew Lopez’s hip-shakin’, heartwarming tale explores what happens when one man trades in his blue suede shoes for platform pumps and discovers “he ain’t nothing but a drag queen.” The Legend of Georgia McBride will be directed by Bruce R. Coleman at the Kalita Humphreys Theater.

Mainstage Show #4

Perfect Arrangement
August 24 - Sept 2, 2018
Kalita Humphreys Theater

To close its 17th season, Uptown Players will present the regional premiere of Topher Payne’s Perfect Arrangement. It’s 1950, and new colors are being added to the Red Scare. Two U.S. State Department employees, Bob and Norma, have been tasked with identifying sexual deviants within their ranks. There’s just one problem: both Bob and Norma are gay, and have married each other’s partners as a carefully constructed cover. Inspired by the true story of the earliest stirrings of the American gay rights movement, madcap classic sitcom-style laughs give way to provocative drama as two “All-American” couples are forced to stare down the closet door. The production will be directed by B. J. Cleveland and will take place at the Kalita Humphreys Theater.
