This Season On Stage


FDU’s Main Stage Theater Season 2014/2015

Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare

One of Shakespeare’s most popular and charming comedies, MUCH ADO features Benedict, a confirmed young bachelor, and Beatrice, his favorite sparring partner. While they hide their infatuation beneath witty barbs, young love blossoms as Hero and Claudio race to the altar. When the evil Don John conspires to break up the match, will false accusations and misunderstandings prevent the young couple's happy ending? Witty wordplay and clever plot twists make this a perfect evening’s entertainment.

Little Shop of Horrors by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood smash musical, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Seymour, the meek floral assistant, 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 Seymour as long as he keeps feeding it  -  BLOOD!!
