The big stage of the Sampson Community Theatre is being transformed from an “under the sea” milieu to a Los Angeles skid row in preparation for the next blockbuster to hit downtown Clinton. That blockbuster is “The Little Shop Of Horrors” which is scheduled to open on Oct. 17 with a run of eight shows with the last show being performed only four days before Halloween.
The cast has been selected and it includes several of our most popular actors who have demonstrated they can sing, dance and excel at comedy. They have about six weeks of intense rehearsals facing them which they are looking forward to attending because of all the fun they will have going over and over the scenes where a plant has to be fed human blood to survive and grow.
The cast will be further delineated in future columns.
Kosterman Chiropractic Clinic has once again agreed to sponsor another of our shows and we are deeply grateful for their support.
Our Christmas show this year will have something for the kids and something for adults in a show entitled “Cinderella’s Christmas Party and A Night of Music,” with show dates on Dec. 12, 13, 19, 20 at 8 p.m. and Dec. 14 and 21 at 3 p.m. The rights have already been obtained and auditions date and time to be announced later.
Our website is available at: www.sampsoncommunitytheatre.org and we are on Facebook but if you visit us there, we ask that you “like” us while there.

Thoughts until next week:
• Lower your voice and strengthen your argument.
• If your car could travel at the speed of light, would your headlights work?
• Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
