LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS is coming in October!
To give you a musical thrill at Halloween time, the troupe will present that hit show about the invasion of alien plant life, Little Shop of Horrors. Seymour Krelborn is a poor young man working at a run-down flower shop on skid row when he encounters a miracle. He discovers an alien plant after a total eclipse of the sun. After learning how to make the plant — named Audrey II in honor of the girl Seymour loves — grow, he gains fame, fortune, and love. The only catch is that the plant feeds on increasing amounts of human blood. Audrey (the girl) has to be saved from her diabolical boyfriend, the sadistic dentist, Orin Scrivello. Seymour, with help from Audrey II, comes to the rescue. Seymour and Audrey II make a pact that leads the show to its amazing conclusion (which is different from the movie version). You won’t want to miss this great show, filled with doo-wop music, great characters, and unbelievable effects. Nan Nawrocki will direct the show which runs October 24 through November 9. Assistant Directors are Daniel Picklesimer and Audrey Kristen-Lewis, Vocal Director Joy Huddlestun.
As a bonus, we will screen the Rocky Horror Picture Show movie AFTER the 11/1 performance of Little Shop. Check the Buy Tickets button to see the single show and Little Shop/Rocky double feature prices.

Auditions for our first show of 2015, Farce of Nature by Jones, Hope, Wooten, will be held on 11-10-14 from 7-9 and 11-11-14 from 6-8 at the Tater Patch Players theater. The show will be performed January 23 through February 8, 2015. The director is Jan Simpson, Assistant Director Audrey Kirsten-Lewis. This is a hilarious farce making its Georgia Premiere. The comedy geniuses of Jones, Hope and Wooten have brought another southern community into life — this time it’s a fish camp in Arkansas. A wacky collection of characters deals with a comedy mash-up of misconception, lies, lust and disguises, with some post-hypnotic suggestion and cross-dressing just to add a dash of spice. The cast consists of five women and four men with parts of varying lengths. Auditions will be by cold readings from the script.

We need your support ~ ways you can help
No theater or arts group in the country can pay for its production by ticket sales alone. Buying tickets helps us and entertains you. We generally finance all the shows from their own revenues and our casts, crews and front of house staff are all volunteers. The work of our volunteers is amazing, but paying the mortgage requires more than talent and dedication. Yes, our bankers, insurers, and others we do business with want cash. Ticket prices alone don’t cover our expenses. We need donors, advertisers, and sponsors. Many people write extra checks this time of year to support their favorite non-profit 501(c)3 organizations. Won’t you consider including Tater Patch Players in your year-end giving? To learn about ways to donate to YOUR community theater click here
