Murrells Inlet Community Theatre … Our Story

Every little theater has its story. Ours began on the rainy afternoon of
April 3, 1998, when 32 people from here, there and everywhere showed up
at the Murrells Inlet Community Center to discuss the possibility of
starting a new theater troupe. Here was this bare stage in the
auditorium of an old schoolhouse, and now here were all these people
eager to make it happen – some who'd been active in theater elsewhere
and others who'd never set foot onstage.

Within a few months we formed a board, adopted a name, became legal
(as a nonprofit) and planned our first show, with the blessings of the
Georgetown County Department of Parks & Recreation, the building's
proprietor. That show was Neil Simon's "Plaza Suite," and we pulled it
off with cardboard flats, tomato-can lights, a mail-order poster, and a
cast and crew ranging from accomplished to simply enthusiastic. Thirteen
years and 38 shows later, Murrells Inlet Community Theatre is still
going strong, thanks to the support of volunteers, patrons, local
businesses and the community at large. We are managed by a board of
directors and produce three plays annually, along with hosting workshops
and other programs for the enlightenment and enjoyment of the community.

StageMouse

If you've acted, dressed a set or carried out any role requiring you to
be on stage for a recent MICT production, chances are you've spotted a
mouse in some inconspicuous corner of the set. Never fear - it's only
Stage Mouse, MICT's resident thespian rodent. Stage Mouse was conceived
(creatively, of course) by June Jordan, who designs MICT's posters and
programs and also serves on the board. We asked her when Stage Mouse
made his debut. "The first show that I put him on stage was Proof.
Because I worked on that set, the idea came to me that it would be cute
to hide a mouse somewhere on the set. The mouse has been on the stage
ever since." So Stage Mouse stays. After all, he's not stealing any
scenes - just our hearts.
