‘Breeches!’ kicks

off 54th season

at New Stage

“Into the Breeches!” opens New Stage Theatre’s 54th season with a comic splash, an ensemble cast and a pull-together spirit that toasts the power of art in community.

Now playing through Sept. 22, the comedy looks in on 1942 Jackson, Mississippi — a setting customized with local and regional shoutouts — where the men are off to war and the women are on to … the stage. On the home front, with the theater director and leading men battling the enemy overseas, their womenfolk are battling nerves, self-confidence issues, latent dreams and undercurrents of sexism and more to prove the show must go on.
