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.

Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa ClausI want to start by saying that I enjoyed the tone of the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s presentation of Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus. I left Saturday’s performance with a warm feeling of Christmas cheer, which seems to me the point of the play, so... Christmas mission accomplished! Yet while there are some notable performances in the piece, it pains me to say that I also have a lot of minor issues with this Showboat production, and particularly with playwright Jamie Gorski’s script.

Evita, at the Clinton Area Showboat TheatreDirector Tommy Iafrate beautifully bookends the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre's Evita with scenes in which the actors acknowledge, or the staging makes clear, that the cast is performing specifically for an audience.

Mackenna Janz and Allison Winkel, alternating performances as AnnieThe Clinton Area Showboat Theatre's Annie feels like a show I've never seen before, even though I'd seen it many times prior to Thursday night’s performance. While the musical’s characters are portrayed in familiar ways, director Patrick Stinson's work seems new, mostly because of designer Kenneth Verdugo’s sets. As odd as that sounds – the idea that a set could change the feel of an entire show – it’s true, because the design not only affects the look of the production, but also how the stage space is used, and what elements are highlighted as a result.
