Our Annual Youth Musical!
Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter
Original Book by P.G. Wodehouse, Howard Linday and Russel Crouse
Anything Goes is set aboard the ocean liner S. S. American, where nightclub singer/evangelist Reno Sweeney is en route from New York to England. Her pal Billy Crocker has stowed away to be near his love, Hope Harcourt, but the problem is Hope is engaged to the wealthy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Joining this love triangle on board the luxury liner are Public Enemy #13, Moonface Martin and his sidekick-in-crime Erma. With the help of some elaborate disguises, tap-dancing sailors and good old-fashioned blackmail, Reno and Martin join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope's heart.

Experience one of the greatest Broadway musicals of the modern age, the Tony Award Winning Best Musical, Spamalot! Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy" Monty Python and the Holy Grail", "Spamalot" retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls? This production will run two weekends including two evenings of dinner theatre on the Friday and Saturday of the first weekend – a first for DCS! The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony Awards, including "Best Musical," and received 14 Tony Award nominations..
A new play
by Walt McGough
A modern-day spook story that asks how you move on from a life lived in shadow. Something went wrong, but Finn, a CIA field operative, is not talking. Instead, he's retiring, and Parker (his debriefer) needs to know why. But trust doesn't come easy at the CIA, and as the two operatives match wits, it becomes clear that they may not even be on the same side. "An enthralling new piece of theatre…a modern spy thriller of a quality that is rarely seen on stage." – Noah S. Guiney, The Harvard Crimson. DCS plans to take this long-form one-act drama to the AACTFest competition in the 2017 cycle.

Set in the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tennessee, this hot new musical bursts off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love. Inspired by actual events, Memphis is about a white radio DJ who wants to change the world and a black club singer who is ready for her big break. Come along on their incredible journey to the ends of the airwaves — filled with laughter, soaring emotion and roofraising rock 'n' roll. Along with the 2010 Best Musical Tony, the show swept the musical writing categories with wins for Best Book by Joe DiPietro, Best Score for Joe DiPietro and David Bryan, and Best Orchestrations for Daryl Waters and David Bryan.

Delta Center Stage and the Greenville Cemetery Association hope to make this an annual event. There is no piece of earth within the city limits that contains more history (of both local, national and international renown) than our cemetery. Each year, beginning in April of 2017, DCS actors will bring to life beside their gravestones the rich and varied stories of six Greenvillians, both famous and obscure. Hear the stories of Greenville's founding fathers, valiant veterans, literary giants, and sometimes obscure denizens of our own hometown's over 150 year old history. Each year will feature new or updated stories from our local history.
