The great Fats Waller musical “Ain’t Misbehavin” will open July 1, 2016 at Theatre Macon located at 438 Cherry St. in historic downtown Macon and will run through July 16, 2016.

The classic Broadway musical “42nd St.” will open July 8, 2016 at the beautiful Grand Opera House located at 651 Mulberry St., also in downtown Macon, and will run through July 16, 2016.

Lastly, the hilarious take on Shakespeare “The complete Works of Shakespeare, abridged” opens at the newly renovated performance space at Mercer University’s Tattnall Center for the Arts on July 7, 2016 and runs through July 16, 2016.
