An homage to the screwball comedies of the 1930s, with an 80s twist. It's New Year’s Eve at the Perry mansion, time for Matthew Perry and his wife, Julia, to divulge their New Year’s Resolutions. Matthew reveals his resolution is to kill his wife before the year is up, and Julia's resolution is to stay alive through the year, so she can attend their daughter Bunny’s wedding. But as Julia dodges Matthew’s murder attempts, several friends and staff mysteriously die on the family estate. Enter Detective Plotnik, a Sam Spade reincarnation, who suspects everyone but hasn’t got a clue. As the bodies fall, it seems that Matthew is responsible for murdering everyone except his wife.

But if he didn’t do it, “who done it?”

A Little Murder Never Hurt Anybody runs Aug 6th – Sep 4th.

Main Street Theatre Works is excited to be back

at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre for our 2021 Summer Season.
But because we're still not completely out of the "Covid woods,"

we ask all our patrons to exercise respect and caution for those around you.

MSTW will still be limiting seating for each performance, so

we highly recommend you make your purchase early 

to make sure you get the night you want.

That said tickets will also be available at the gate.

We still request that you seat your "pod" 2-ice-chests from another pod.

And if you're not vaccinated, for your own safety, we strongly suggest you wear a mask 

when moving about the Amphitheatre.

Of course, once you're seated, remove your mask and enjoy your picnic dinner and the show!

​If you have any questions or concerns about this summer's season, please don't hesitate to reach out.

You can send us an email through this website (under "Contact"),

and someone will get back to you within 24 hours.

We look forward to seeing you all at the Amphitheatre in Jackson this summer.
