JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Broadway is coming to Jackson. City leaders say the Capital City will be the only venue in the state of Mississippi where this series is being offered.

Broadway plays such as Jersey Boys, Beauty and the Beast, and Annie will be performed at Thalia Mara Hall. Mayor Tony Yarber says it will also be an opportunity for students in the city to be engaged and introduced to Broadway productions.

"So this is exciting," said Mayor Yarber. "It's not only exciting because of the economic boost that its gonna bring to the city, but its also exciting because of the investment that its gonna make into our human capital. The investment its going to make into this creative economy that is culture and arts."

An open house is planned for Friday evening from 5 to 7 at Thalia Mara Hall. The first production is set for November.
