Hello, dear volunteers and friends!
The city has asked us to vacate our storage and office space in the Historic Masonic building due to the remodel and reassignment of space going on, and we have a pretty short window to do so.
We have a UHaul and a place to move into, so we would love to have folks during the day on TUESDAY MARCH 12 (yes that's tomorrow) to help load and unload the truck.
We will be starting when the truck arrives at 9:30 or so, and are scheduled to be done by 5:00.
Many hands lighten the load, so if you have an hour or two free, we would love to see you.
Please let us know if you are planning on coming later in the day, so we can notify you if we are done early, or are working at the new space.

We love our volunteers!

It pains us to do so, but we are taking the advice of the Sheriff's office. Today's presentation of Short and Sweet 2 is cancelled due to the horrendous road conditions. No travel has been advised and the last thing we want to do is endanger the lives of our cast, crew, and especially anyone travelling to see the show. Please stay safe out there if you must travel today. We are currently looking into rescheduling the show for another day, so please be on the lookout for news on that. ... See MoreSee Less

Friends! We are very sorry to say that tonight's (Feb. 23) production of Short and Sweet 2 is being cancelled due to the forecasted blizzard-like conditions. Have no fear, however, because tomorrow's show will still be happening at its regularly scheduled time! If you have preordered your tickets online for tonight, you can use those tickets for tomorrow's show. Thank you for your understanding, everyone, and we hope to see you tomorrow! Stay safe out there! ... See MoreSee Less

GivingTuesday – November 28th

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, GivingTuesday is a global day of giving. On this year’s GivingTuesday, November 28th, consider making a donation to Theatre du Mississippi to continue the gift of supporting local and original theatre!

Founded in 1997, Theatre du Mississippi is committed to presenting performances that have a unique connection to the community, with an emphasis on original works that tell stories from the area’s rich history.

As one of the longest continually existing non-profit arts organizations in the region, we are proud to offer original works all written and produced by local artists. We share the Winona area’s rich history with the community and anyone who is part of our community. Through our theater and music programming, we develop new playwrights, actors, musicians and technical people who share their work with the community.

Our seasonal programming has included original historical fall productions, our annual Christmas Radio Show, and a yearly staged playwriting competition called Original Shorts. We were also proud to partner with the Winona History Center for two consecutive summers to produce plays at the historical Bunnell House.

By making a donation, you will be able to take pride in helping an organization that has provided so many opportunities not only to the community to learn about our rich history, but the opportunity for local artists and theatrical technicians to grow and hone their craft.

Thank you from all of us at Theatre du Mississippi and for participating in #GivingTuesday!
