Building on the writing tradition of William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, Richard Wright, and other players in Mississippi's literary heritage, New Stage Theatre populates its stages with contemporary and classic works by American playwrights. Often comical, often challenging, each season's flock of five musicals and straight plays spreads across colorfully set stages with an aim to attract a culturally diverse audience. The artistic staff balances works by the likes of Lorraine Hansberry, Arthur Miller, and Horton Foote with new and developing productions through the Eudora Welty New Play Series, named for the writer who served on the board of directors. New Stage Theatre staff complements their theatre's strong artistic vision with educational programs for youth and adults, including touring programs. These outreach endeavors earned theater staff the 1995 Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts. While the original New Stage Theatre was founded in an old church 46 years ago, all of its performances currently fill the large and small theaters at Jane Reid Petty Theatre Center.
Recently featured in the Washington Post, Ballet Magnificat! became the first Christian-based professional ballet company in the nation when it was established in the mid-1980s by award-winning dancer Kathy Thibodeaux. With this deal, ballet fans can get a up-close view to watch Thibodeaux and others perform in this year's performance, which marks the 25th anniversary of the Christmas production in Jackson. More than 150 other dancers and 300 different costumes will be a part of A Christmas Dream, which will depict a spectacular battle between a grand multitude of angels and fly-like creatures set to the music of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker. Enjoy the rich acoustics and intimate views inside Thalia Mara Hall, an ideal setting for ballets or ballet-inspired monster-truck rallies. Following the show, guests are invited to drop by the after-parties for cookies, book-signings, and conversations with some of their favorite twirlers.

Last Call's menu fills nutritionally bankrupt stomachs with moral morsels of flavorful amidst electrifying weekly events such as live music, dart leagues, and karaoke. Ravenous bird watchers can snag a mouthful of in-bone or boneless wings flapping around the restaurant, baptizing them in a culinary cauldron of zesty sauces such as lemon pepper, sweet red chili, and southwest chipotle. The jalapeño burger, topped with jalapeño bacon, diced jalapeños, and cheddar cheese, and served with a choice of side ($7.99), melts oral ice ages. And the shrimp po' boy, breaded butterflied shrimp dressed with lettuce, tomato, mayo, and cocktail sauce ($7.99), acts as a father figure to the orphan sea monkeys swimming aimlessly around your stomach.
