Mad Theatre of Tampa Presents It Shoulda Been You, a Crowd-Pleasing Comedy

Mad Theatre of Tampa incorporates the three performing arts — music, acting, & dance — to bring affordable musical theatre to stages in Tampa, Florida.

mad Theatre of Tampa, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, run by community volunteers. We welcome newcomers to the mad Theatre family in all areas: performance, production, direction, stage crew, costuming, set design, construction, lighting, and sound engineering.

Our goal is to produce shows that make you laugh, shows that make you think, and shows that make you want to get up onstage and perform with us. We’ll produce shows that will have you dancing in your seat or on your feet, and we’ll have shows that inspire you to change the world around you. And we’ll present them like you’ve never seen before.

See mad’s latest production of “It Shoulda Been You.” This comedy at the Shimberg Playhouse at the Straz Center tells a story of a world where nothing is what it seems, religions collide, Machiavellian plots are revealed, promises are broken, secrets are exposed and hope springs from the most unlikely of places… Is it the latest conflict in the Middle East? No, it’s just the Howard-Steinberg wedding. The charming, funny and original new musical, It Shoulda Been You invites you to a wedding day that you’ll never forget, where anything that can go wrong does, and love pops up in mysterious places.

The bride is Jewish. The groom is Catholic. Her mother is a force of nature. His mother is a tempest in a cocktail shaker. And, when the bride’s ex-boyfriend crashes the party, the perfect wedding starts to unravel faster than you can whistle “Here Comes the Bride!” It’s up to the sister of the bride to turn a tangled mess into happily ever after in this musical comedy for anyone who ever had parents.

A two-act laugh riot, It Shoulda Been You is a guaranteed crowd-pleasing hit. This is a true ensemble show, featuring a dozen standout roles from old to young, making it a terrific choice for theatres wanting to feature their outstanding talent.

Holy Cross Manor II Apartments, the premier apartments in Palmetto, Florida, is inviting friends and neighbors to attend this unforgettable event!
