The Mississippi Mudds
Music, Dance and Drama on Stage! The Mississippi MUDDS was founded over 30 years ago and has consistently lived up to its acronym name. Over the years Carleton Place audiences have been treated to many polished productions; Broadway musicals, musical comedy reviews, family shows in the style of English pan, to full length or one act plays, and murder mystery dinner theatre.
The MUDDS encompass education, personal development and fun where residents of all ages can learn, develop and grow by expressing themselves through music, dance and drama.
Not only do the MUDDS create theatrical productions, but also lifelong friendships and memories that will last long after a show ends. The MUDDS pride themselves in the charitable support they work hard to offer others, including a student bursary program.
The MUDDS play a valuable role in shaping the character of Carleton Place. Don’t miss out on the best performances the Mississippi has to offer!
