Join us to be whisked away as we parade from one engaging and immersive entertainment to the next at our second annual Mardi Gras Bash!

The Underground is raising money to help support artists and sustain community theatre, and your ticket includes beverages, good eats, amazing entertainment and fundraising fun like you’ve never experienced.

At our Mardi Gras, the Krewe that raises the most money of the night will be crowned the Kings and Queens of Mardi Gras! What is a Krewe, you ask? In true Mardi Gras fashion, a Krewe is a social organization that puts on a parade or ball for the Carnival season. Our Krewes won’t be building floats for a parade, but we will be parading down the street after crowning our King and Queen.

This one-night event is bringing all the wildness of New Orleans to The Underground!
