Kelsey Theatre is located on MCCC’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. A reception with the cast and crew follows the opening night show on June 17.

It’s 1930s Texas in the midst of the Great Depression when young Bonnie Parker falls in love with Clyde Barrow, a criminal on the run.  Once they join forces in a series of store and bank robberies, the violence and body count start to rise. The ill-fated lovers soon find themselves at the top of the Public Enemies list – villains to many and folk heroes to some during desperate times.
