By Jane Kendall from the novel by Jane Austen. Set in England during the early 1800’s, five daughters of the Bennet family must be married off! Was ever a mother as put upon as Mrs. Bennet? Jane falls deeply in love with the wealthy Mr. Bingley, and romance might be possible between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. But Mr. Darcy is a very proud young man. He is shocked by mama’s vulgar matchmaking! The attraction between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy eventually triumphs over the pride of one and the prejudice of the other. Directed by Vanessa Nixon Klein (vanessank@gmail.com).  Produced by Louise Fisher.

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatergoers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Beauty and The Beast) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world. The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II”—after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down-and-out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it BLOOD. Over time Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out-of-this-world origins and intent towards global domination!

All Day Sing - Shape Note Singing

At the Tiller Arts Center

Shape notes are a music notation designed to facilitate congregational and community singing. The notation, introduced in 1801, became a popular teaching device in American singing schools. Shapes were added to the note heads in written music to help singers find pitches within major and minor scales without the use of more complex information found in key signatures on the staff.

An Evening of Classic Theatre at the Roxy in Morton

Tickets:  $12 adults advance ($13 at the door)

Daphne du Maurier’s short story, also the basis for Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film, is boldly adapted by Conor McPherson—a gripping, unsettling, and moving look at human relationships in the face of societal collapse. In an isolated house, strangers Nat and Diane take shelter from relentless masses of attacking birds. Another refugee, the young and attractive Julia, arrives with news of the outside world, but her presence also brings discord. Their survival becomes even more doubtful when paranoia takes hold of the makeshift fortress—an internal threat to match that of the birds outside.
