More Barks than Bites as 101 Dalmatians Comes to the Dixie Theatre Stage

Starting this Friday night, the Marshall County Community Theatre Kids Division brings an old Disney favorite to the Dixie Theatre stage with a musical adaptation of 101 Dalmatians.
First made famous by the animated Walt Disney classic in 1961, 101 Dalmatians has been made into movies, animated series for television and now it comes to the theatre stage. Under the direction of Allison Mulliniks, the MCCT Kids Division with its 38-member cast will bring this musical adaption to life. Assistant directors Kelsey Keny and Luke Collins add their expertise on the stage to the young cast of elementary and middle school performers who have been rehearsing for weeks to learn their parts and their songs. The musical play combines action and humor and a great score of songs under the musical direction of Doug May, another veteran of high school and community theatre performances at the Dixie.
101 Dalmatians has delighted audiences for generations with its cute and cuddly characters and one of the greatest villainous characters and names, Cruella De Vil. Emma Butt will be deliciously Cruella in the role of the infamous villain who plans to make an evil fashion statement from the large litter of puppies belonging to Pongo, played by Leremie Plott, and Perdita, played by Kelsie Lowe. Follow the plight of all those puppies and their parents as they attempt to escape the devious clutches of Cruella De Vil when the play opens this Friday night at 7:30 p.m.
You can catch all six performances at the Dixie Theatre on the Lewisburg square Oct. 22, 23, 24, 29, 30 and 31. The Sunday performances on Oct. 24 and 31 will be matinee performances beginning at 2 p.m. All other performances will hit the stage at 7:30 p.m.
