The metro area is home to some talented actors and directors. You can see them in action in several upcoming productions, so mark your calendars!
1. “The Taffetas.” The curtain rises Aug. 27 on Cedar Falls Community Theatre’s production of “The Taffetas, A Musical Journey Through the Fabulous Fifities.” Performances continue at the Oster Regent Theatre in downtown Cedar Falls on Aug. 28, 29 and 30. Director is theater veteran Liane Nichols with Stephanie Althof as musical director.
This is the nostalgic story of four singing sisters, The Taffetas, who are making their national television debut in a story that pays tribute to The McGuire Sisters, The Fontane Sisters and The Chordettes. With hits like “Johnny Angel,” “Where the Boys Are,” and “Mister Sandman,” how can The Taffetas miss!

2. “Little Shop of Horrors.” Sure looks like plant food to me, Seymour! A hapless flower shop worker raises a carnivorous plant that feasts on humans in the comedy horror rock musical, “Little Shop of Horrors,” presented by Waterloo Community Playhouse. With music ranging from ‘60s rock ‘n’ roll to doo-wop and Motown, you’ll be dancing in your seat at the Hope Martin Theatre in the Waterloo Center for the Arts.
Performances are Oct. 16 through Oct. 25.
