Now Showing: "Little Shop of Horrors"
A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, "Little Shop of Horrors" has devoured the hearts of theater goers for more than 30 years. 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. Performance dates are July 24-26, July 30-31 and Aug. 1-2, with a preview performance on July 22. Learn more.
Upcoming Auditions: "Hound of the Baskervilles
Auditions for Pierre Players' first show of the 2015-2016 season, "Hound of the Baskervilles" by Tim Kelly, will be held Sunday, Aug. 16, 2015, 6 p.m. at the Grand Opera House. Sir Charles—the baronet of the Baskerville family—is dead, and the footprints of a giant hound have been found near his body. Holmes is asked to save the new heir, Sir Henry Baskerville, from his eerie legacy. While mysterious lights signal Baskerville Hall and the hound terrifies the countryside, the sleuthing begins and suspicion falls on sinister servants, butterfly collectors, ladies in distress and escaped convicts. The play is based on the story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. There are parts for 5 men and 5 women. Performance dates are Oct. 2-4 and Oct. 8-10, 2015, with a preview performance on Sept. 30. For more information contact director Hannah Carda at 605.222.7723 or assistant director Michele Beeler at 605.999.8503. Learn more.
