The Community Theatre of Clay County, Inc., will present, "Little Shop of Horrors," March 11-13.

The dark comedy is a musical by composer Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman.

The performance centers around down-on-his-luck floral shop worker, Seymour Krelborn, who lives on "Skid Row."

Seymour's luck begins to change when a strange and interesting plant brings in many new customers. The downside, however, is that the plant needs human blood to survive.

The musical includes songs in the style of the early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown, such as the title song, "Skid Row (Downtown)," "Somewhere That's Green," and "Suddenly, Seymour."

Performers for the musical include Mitchell Smith (Seymour), Rochell Reberger (Audrey), David Landes (Mr. Mushnik), Josh Hoffman (The Plant, Audrey Two), Julia Kapke (Crystal), Alyssa Papinchock (Ronette), Alexis Gibbens (Chiffon), Greg Otte (Orin Scrivello, DDS), Keri Fagg (Mrs. Luce/Customer No. 2), Carl McKinney (Radio Announcer/Mr. Bernstein), Sandy Gibbens (Interviewer/Customer No. 1), Mike Hoffman (Skip Snip), Carol McConnell (Patricia Martin), and Carolyn Warner, Keri Fagg, Carl McKinney, Lee Reberger, JoAnn Stearley, Dennis Morris, Sandy Gibbens, Mike Hoffman and Carrie Rushton as Winos, Derelicts and Vagabonds.

This is the second to last musical the troupe will perform this season.

The final performance of the season, "The Royal Family," is scheduled for May 6-8.

The performances will be preceded by a dinner buffet, served at 6:30 p.m., with the shows starting at 7:20. Tickets are $25, and must be purchased in advance.

For reservations, call Lisa Beyers at 442-6909.

Anyone wishing additional information about the theater or its upcoming performances may call the ticket number and request a season brochure and information about season ticket options.
