The Bay St. Louis Little Theatre Presents
Stella, Blues, BBQ
THE 8th ANNUAL
STELLA YELLING CONTEST!
The annual Stella, Blues, and BBQ is scheduled for Saturday, March 26th , from 3pm to 11pm at the Bay St. Louis Little Theatre on Blaize Avenue. The Silver Slipper and the Bay St. Louis Little Theatre will sponsor the event.
Phil Williams and his well-known, delicious BBQ will open the event at 3pm in front of the Little Theatre. The Raw Oyster Marching Club will be joining the festivities.
Then one of the community’s favorite tradition, the Stella Yelling Contest, will begin at 4pm under the balcony of the Little Theatre. Contestants are not limited to gender or age. All participants are welcome. Each contestant should be prepared to give their best Stanley Kowalski “STELLA!!!” yell to the Little Theatre Stella. Stanley and Stella are characters of the Tennessee Williams play “A Streetcar Named Desire.” The entry fee is $10. This year there will be cash prizes. First prize will be $150 and a trophy, second prize is $100, and third is $50. The contest is incorporated into the Stella, Blues, and BBQ celebration. Entrants must register on site before 3:30pm on March 26th.
The Little Theatre holds the contest every year and performs one of Tennessee Williams’ plays to celebrate his birthday. This year the play is “The Rose Tattoo.” BSLLT has a connection with the Pulitzer Prize winning author because the Theatre’s building was the primary set for the Hollywood motion picture “This Property is Condemned” based on a one-act play by Williams.
After the contest, the Little Theatre will open its doors at 5:30pm to the community for an evening at their Juke Joint Jam. There will be a cash bar and dancing to the sounds of local bands “Phil Smooth and the Electric Sheep” followed by “Heather and the Monkey King.”
The Stella, Blues, and BBQ will be Theatre-centric this year. It promises to be another fun event for the community. For more details call 228-467-9024.
