MARDI GRAS Saturday will feature Dixieland

The calendar says Mardi Gras (the day before L ent begins) is Tuesday. Don’t you believe it, cher!

Mardi Gras (French for “Fat Tuesday”) in the form of the first of five Kay Theater Foundation productions this spring will unroll at 7:30 p.m. Saturday when the Patterson Center will be transformed into New Orleans’ Vieux Carre (French Quarter) complete with Dixieland music.

Scott Bailey’s Second Line Jazz Band will perform.

The Kay is serving beignets and coffee to top off the evening in true Louisiana style.

Tickets are $30, or season tickets for all five events can be purchased for $125. Tickets are available at Elements at Main, 219 North Main, and from any Kay Theater Foundation board member. Call 512-446-6500 or 512-446-7278 for further information.
