The North Fork Community Theatre (NFCT) is kicking off its 58th season with their adaptation of Howard Ashman's "Little Shop of Horrors."
The beloved Broadway rock musical centers around Seymour Krelborn, a timid floral assistant, who discovers a new type of plant, which he names Audrey II, after his co-worker crush. The brash R&B-singing carnivore assures Seymour he can turn the meek assistant's luck around by bringing him endless stardom and wealth, but only if Seymour keeps feeding the plant whatever it desires. Once Seymour wises up to Audrey II's outlandish demands and true intent, he sets out to make things right.
NFCT's production will be directed by Mary Motto Kalich, with Dee Laveglia as Music Director.
"Come have an 'out of this world' rock and roll musical theater experience in a quaint 1831 church that was converted to a theatre over 50 years ago," said Mary Motto Kalich. "This 'horror' filled musical is fun for the whole family."
Performances will take place on Thursday, October 29th, Friday, October 30th, Saturday, October 31st, Thursday, November 5th, Friday, November 6th, Saturday, November 7th, Thursday, November 12th, Friday, November 12th, and Saturday, November 14th at 8 p.m. Matinees will be held on Sunday, November 1st, Sunday, November 8th and Sunday, November 15th at 2 p.m. Free receptions will be held every Thursday at 7 p.m.
