Davenport's hand-colored drawings of the Mardi Gras parade bands include fine points, such as the exact number of marchers, detailed uniforms and the instruments played by each band member.

The Picture of Dorian Gray

September 11-14

Gulfport Little Theatre is proud to present The Picture of Dorian Gray directed by William Keith Gregory II.  A play adapted for stage by John Osborne from the novel written by Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray is a dramatic story of money, youth, and morality. Set in late Victorian London, Picture revolves around Dorian Gray, a wealthy and egocentric, yet naive man whose everlasting beauty overshadows all who surround him. After sitting for artist Basil Hallward, Dorian Gray is plagued with anxiety by the eternal youthfulness of his portrait. Morally corrupt socialite Harry Wotton justifies Dorian's dark descent for perfection by stating as long as one is young, beautiful, and wealthy enough, one can get away with anything. "Youth... there is absolutely nothing else in the world." As Dorian spirals into a life of debauchery, he and the audience are left to wonder if he is capable of recapturing the innocence of his youth.

GLT's production of The Picture of Dorian Gray includes a number of Coast stage veterans, with Julian Wilkey in the title role, Arthur Bailey as Lord Henry "Harry" Wotten, and Clayton Pennylegion as the painter Basil Hallward. Ashlee Campbell is Dorian's jilted fiancé, Sibyl Vane, and Gail Preston plays the Duchess of Harley. Arthur Bailey is Assistant Director along with Christina Sobolewski who is also Stage Manager. Lighting and sound is under the direction of Sarah Bartos.

Reservations are recommended.

The Wedding Singer

It's 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party, until his own fiancee leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.

If you think there's nothing new and exciting coming out of the blues genre, you haven't heard The Mojo Roots. With performances that turn on a dime from a driving, hard-hitting shuffle to an aching, tear-dripping slow blues, the Mojo Roots brand of soul-soaked blues is captivating audiences in their home state of Missouri and beyond.

June Ward: Passages and Possibilities

Gulfport, Mississippi artist June Ward is inspired by beauty and color. After studying drawing and art history at the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas, she continued with other learning venues and private instruction, exploring forms of creative expression. In 2009, Ward was juried into membership of Oil Painters of America and is a member of Women Painters of the Southeast. She serves as a Regional Director for The National Museum for Women in the Arts in Washington, DC. Passages and Possibilities follows Ward's passages through life as she searched for her artistic voice, open to all possibilities. Her art follows the cycle of the seasons in still life, landscape and figurative works. Flowers in her still life paintings show the natural progression of time with blooms at their peak, fading flowers and seeds signifying the repeating cycle. Her landscapes, which often include figurative elements, speak of the passage of time in different geographical locations. The overriding theme throughout all these categories is the emphasis of light, in an intimate setting accented with Ward's hand painted furniture.
