'Secret Affairs of Mildred Wild' coming to Warehouse

Corsicana — On Thursday, May 8, the Warehouse Living Arts Center Theatre will open “The Secret Affairs of Mildred Wild” by award-winning playwright Paul Zindel.  In the tiny living quarters behind the New York City candy store which she operates with her husband, crowded with her forty-year collection of movie magazines, Mildred Wild (Debbie Hanks) has virtually escaped from reality into the dream world of Hollywood movies and stars. And when the outside world does intrude—via her husband (Mark Bedgood); his meddling sister (Sandra McClure Mahood); their hard-boiled landlady (Grace Sowell); the mincing butcher (Adam Walthall) from next door; or the foreman of the wrecking crew (Tom Herrin) sent to tear down the building—Mildred meets each crisis with a hilarious fantasy-scene drawn from her precious lode of old movies.  Include a camera crew (Annot Walthall, Ethan Herrin), a visiting nun (Emily Hines) and you have the entire wacky cast of characters. The May 8 performance includes the opening night reception immediately following the show. Evening performances on  May  9-10, 13, 15-17 begin at 7:30. The Sunday matinee on Mother’s Day, May 11, begins at 2:00pm. Tickets are now on sale at the Warehouse Living Arts Center which is located at 119 West 6th Avenue across from the post office.   Tickets may also be purchased online at For reserved seating and ticket info, please call the box office at 903.872.5421.
