The Marcelle and New Line Theatre now in Grand Center

Grand Center has a new theater space to show off: The Marcelle. The official opening will be through New Line Theatre’s production of Heathers, with a preview on October 1 and run dates of October 2-24. This hilarious, big-hearted, and homicidal production is based on the 1989 cult film – truly one of the darkest teen comedies of all time. The Marcelle is located at 3310 Samuel Shepard Drive and boasts a 150-seat black box theatre, a dance studio and nonprofit office spaces. Tenants include New Line Theatre, Big Muddy Dance Company, and STL Up Late, a local internet talk show. For more information about Heathers or to purchase tickets, visit the New Line Theatre website.
