GERMANTOWN — GCS Drama Club is excited to perform its fall drama club production, Little Shop of Horrors, on November 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m. both nights. Tickets will be sold for $10 (adults) and $5 (students/seniors) at the door. The show will be held in the Germantown Central School cafetorium on 123 Main St., in Germantown.The show, which inspired a 1980s musical movie adaptation featuring Rick Moranis and Steve Martin, is an entertaining mix of comedy, drama, mild horror, and sci-fi rolled into one. The score was written by Alan Menken, who also penned the music for Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin, among others. This production features a cast of fifteen students ranging from the ninth grade to the twelfth grade. Additionally, there will be a handful of students playing alongside adult musicians in the pit orchestra, working on the tech crew and stage crew, and assisting in other areas. Each performance is anticipated to last for approximately two and a half hours, including a fifteen-minute intermission at which soft drinks and dessert items will be sold for a dollar each.
The core production team consists of Lois McClarnon (director), Lynne Czajka (choreographer, co-drama club advisor, and vocal director), and Daniel Galliher (co-drama club advisor and pit orchestra director). This is the second time the GCS Drama Club has performed “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” and the cast, crew, and production team hope to have a full house at every performance. Two weeks after this show is presented, the fifth through eighth grade students in the Germantown Junior Drama program will present Willy Wonka on Friday, November 22nd at 7 p.m. and Saturday, November 23rd at 2 p.m.
