Little Shop of Horrors

Book and Lyrics by Howard Ashman, Music by Alan Menken

Directed by Dr. Biliana Stoytcheva-Horissian

November 15-18, 2023

The entertaining, horror-sci-fi-musical comedy featuring the creative geniuses of Ashman and Menken (Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty and The Beast, and Aladdin) is one of the longest running Off-Broadway shows and has entertained theatre goers for over 35 years. The charmingly tongue-in-cheek dark comedy tells the story of a timid floral assistant Seymour Krelborn who stumbles across a new breed of plant and names it after his crush. The foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune as long as it is well fed, but will Seymour realize the plant’s intent towards global domination before it is too late?

Doubt: A Parable

By John Patrick Shanley

Directed by Matt Ripa

February 28-March 2, 2024

In John Patrick Shanley's award winning play, a new charismatic priest is accused of an inappropriate relationship with a student by the hard-nosed and traditional principal, Sister Aloysius. She will stop at nothing to expose Father Flynn as she parses out the facts, even as she wrestles with her own doubts about the truth. Doubt: A Parable won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play.

Stupid F##king Bird

By Aaron Posner

Directed by Matt Ripa

April 17-20, 2024

The play explores unrequited love and the struggle of creating art in Aaron Posner's contemporary (somewhat) adaptation of The Seagull by Anton Checkhov. This hilariously dark play follows two generations of artists as they deal with heartbreak, fame, family, and a dead seagull.
