Carriage House Players’ production of “Little Shop of Horrors” enters into its final weekend of shows this Thursday evening.

The cast and crew have spent their summer assuring that this is another great night of entertainment for you. The story varies slightly from the one made famous by the movie of the same name starring Rick Moranis and Steve Martin in 1986. Ben Spears who portrays one of the lead characters, Seymore, says “We won’t reveal how the story ends, you’ll have to come out this weekend and see for yourself!”

Remaining shows will be Aug. 8, 9 and 10 at 7 p.m. in the Adnia Rice Theater of the Lincoln County High School with an additional 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday the 10th.

The production team was pleased with the attendance for opening weekend as the cast put forth four great shows. Director Brenda Wilkes is joined by Assistant Directors Jennifer Bradford and Mickey Johnson with Lisa Adams directing the musical portion of the show and Jordan Allen choreographing.
