Priscilla Beach Theatre (PBT) recently held the last main Barn Stage production this season with the ever popular, "Little Shop of Horrors." The image above is a posed portrait of the entire cast and director (at center with hat). It is a rare treat for me to have every performer with their million dollar smiles looking directly into the camera. Most of my work at PBT is during live action performances and the camera is invisible. They look as great as was the show!
Bob and Sandy Malone, owners and guardians of Priscilla Beach Theatre, have done it again - closed out another season of outstanding performances with this sold-out run!
The story line: "A sci-fi musical smash hit with touch in cheek comedy! 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. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out of the world origins and intent toward global domination." (Source: PBT)

Director Matt Torrance, a Plymouth native, is a multi-talented singer, dancer, actor, and director who many of you will remember for his outstanding role in PBT's 2015 opening summer season production of "Chicago." Many of you local PBT parents will remember Matt for his kind and endearing manner as a director of many children's productions here at PBT.
And yes, I realize some images are similar to each other. That is purposeful. None of these are posed (except the all-cast portraits), rather, they are moments frozen in time during a live performance. They are basically snapshots. An individual actor/actress may look better in one than the other. It matters if you are the individual actor/actress - perhaps not so much if you're a random reader looking at this blog post - please indulge me for the benefit of the cast. They often use these images to share with family, friends, and to build their portfolio.
