Celebrate Mardi Gras on Fat Tuesday (March 5th) with Creole Stomp at Theatre at the Center

Creole Stomp shows have become legendary for the heat and passion conveyed from the stage – music with emotion and energy that literally jumps from the band. In fact, over the years the band has become informally known as “The Grateful Dead of Creole Music,” for their well-oiled, dancer-driven, crowd pleasing marathon jams and improvisation. Traditional Louisiana Cajun two-steps, reels, and waltzes sizzle in the stew along with Creole blues and mazurkas.

Individual tickets are $35 for the 7:00 p.m. concert. Student tickets are $20. A Mardi Gras Buffet is available before the concert in the adjoining dining room for an additional $30 plus tax. A limited number of Special Edition T-shirts will be available at the show for sale at $20 each. A Cash Bar will also be available. To purchase individual tickets, call the Box Office at 219-836-3255 or visit
