The Bossier Arts Council’s East Bank Theatre is thrilled to announce their upcoming production of Bumped Off by local playwright Mat Latz. This original production which has never been performed before will run March 21-23rd and March 28-30th at 7pm. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased from the Bossier Arts Council by calling 741-8310.
This is the first in a long time commitment of the Bossier Arts Council’s staff and board of directors to produce original works written by Shreveport-Bossier natives. Local Mat Latz not only wrote but is also directing and performing in the production. The production can best be described as a comedy murder mystery that pays tribute to great film makers like Mel Brookes. When asked for three words that best described the production Latz replied “Campy, over the top, and fun”. This production has a rating of PG-13 but Latz said that he is a family man and aims to have his productions appropriate for teens and adults. While he sites some colorful remarks in his description he says for the most part it’s “just clean fun”. In this murder mystery no one is who they seem and literally ANYONE could be the killer. No really! We hear rumor of a VERY surprising ending.

Leigh Anne Chambers, Executive Director of the Bossier Arts Council, said the following about the production and BAC’s commitment to original works “I am always impressed with the talent pool present in Shreveport-Bossier and in all disciplines. I think it’s time we give playwrights an opportunity to see their work performed onstage with a live audience watching. I also believe strongly that our community wants to support our artists and experience a truly unique experience”.
To make reservation call 318-741-8310 or stop by the Bossier Arts Council at 630 Barksdale Blvd Tuesday-Saturday 11-6pm. The production has limited seating of a 100 each night so hurry while they last!
