Carly Ann Berg, Sarah Randall, Heather Baisley, and Jenna Haimes in The Taffetas; photo by Jean BlackTight harmonies, effervescent smiles, and pastel-colored dresses are the highlights of the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s The Taffetas, a jukebox musical featuring songs from the 1950s. Yet it's barely a musical. The production plays out as the titular girls' group makes its national television debut on the Spotlight on Music show – with the Showboat crowd serving as the “live studio audience” for a televised concert – and as there isn’t much dialogue, or much plot, The Taffetas is really more of a revue.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling BeeThe Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightfully entertaining musical comedy that I wouldn’t mind seeing over and over again, as Friday’s performance of director Tommy Iafrate’s production was funny, touching, and energetic, serving as an exceptional rendering of the musical’s charm, wit, humor, and high level of enjoyability.

Bye Bye Birdie at the Clinton Area Showboat TheatreAmong Bye Bye Birdie’s signature numbers is the show-tune staple “Put on a Happy Face,” and barring one intentionally, gloriously sour exception, the cast for the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s winning and energetic production of this Broadway warhorse has done just that.

Into the WoodsThe scenic design for the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s Into the Woods is deceptively simple – basically a half-dozen white drop curtains hanging ceiling to floor, with a few stone steps decorating the otherwise bare stage. But don’t be fooled: Like a rabbit being pulled from a hat, something truly magical emerges from this production’s minimalist-by-necessity façade.

Pink and Green Mother from Outer Space: "Little Shop of Horrors," at the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre through June 10

Little Shop of HorrorsThe Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s Little Shop of Horrors kicks off with the promise of a lot of fun. The opening, titular doo-wop number is full of spirit (aided by choreographer Brian Cowing’s homage to ’50s-era backup singers) and is well sung by the trio of street urchins – played by Monique Abry, Heather Botts, and Nyla Watson – who showcase impressive solo belt voices and tight harmonies. With my head bopping and my lips longing to sing along, I believed I was in for a raucous good time during Friday’s performance. However, the Showboat’s production wilts as the carnivorous plant at the center of the action grows.
