"Little Shop of Horrors"
A Cult Musical/Horror Comedy
Produced by Act II Entertainment
Directed by Alfonso Lopez
Wednesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays at 7:00 pm (through Dec)
2019 Open Run: Every Thursday at 7:00 pm

One of Off-Broadway's most popular cult musicals, Little Shop of Horrors is the hilarious tale of a down-and-out Skid Row floral assistant, the girl he loved, and a strange new, man-eating plant threatening to tear their world apart. This cult classic was one of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows and has become a household name thanks to a highly successful film version and a fantastic musical score! For the past 30 years, people just can't get the catchy music out of their heads!

Directed by Alfonso López, the uber-talented director of "Rocky Horror" last year, this beloved horror/comedy/rock/musical is another first-class production at Act II and brings back the sounds and ambiance of the rock 'n' roll era. It stars many of your favorite Act II actors, plus some wonderful new faces, including Maria Rose, Joey Martinez, Alex McLauchlan, Andrew Sands, Shawn Morgan, Eli Estrada, Sasha del Oceano, and Ximena Peña Esparza. It also features the return of Act II Managing Partner, Danny Mininni, to the stage, with his portrayal of the crotchety and hilarious "Mr. Mushnik." With its delightful cast and toe-tapping music, Little Shop of Horrors is a must-see this season!

"Little Shop of Horrors" Reviews:

"You have to see this play it was fantastic. The casts execution of the show was wonderful. Loved Maria Rose as Audrey, her voice is a amazing. Costumes all done by her as well. A very talented cast. You won't regret seeing this production. Go see it." - SandiG68, TripAdvisor, 11/9/18

"We have never been disappointed with any show we have seen here. The talent at this production was through the roof. There we a couple familiar faces, Joey Martinez and Andrew Sands and of course Danny Mininni. If you are in Puerto Vallarta please go, you won't regret it, AND it is air conditioned." - ReedRN, TripAdvisor 11/6/18

"Just saw ACT ll's Little Shop of Horrors. I didn't expect the level of professionalism on display, from the sets, acting, singing to the choreography. ACT ll may be a small venue but they definitely put on big shows. Yes it may be a cliche but run, don't walk, and get tickets for this musical. If your plans are for coming down later in the season go online lots of great shows to come. As a plus they have a great patio to enjoy a drink prior to the show." -rickdj5364YT, Fresno, TripAdvisor - 11/5/18

The Act II nuns are always up to something new and irreverent! Directed by Alfonso López and choreographed by Steven Retchless, "Nunsense A-Men!" is the kind of show that picks you up and shakes you around and makes you want to dance.

"Boob Tube"
A salute to TV's favorite variety shows from the 70's
A Don & Rhonda Production
Opening Night: Monday, November 19 - Party 6:00 pm / Show 7:00 pm
Open Run: Every Monday - 7:00 pm

The 1970's were a time of change. Television (the "Boob Tube") was still relatively new, and producers were trying to wean people away from the big screen. Variety shows became a staple of American Television. Anyone that was "someone" got their own television variety show. Think back to the time when you and your family sat in a one-television home and enjoyed the shows of Sonny & Cher, Laugh In, Smothers Brothers, Captain & Tennille, Tony Orlando & Dawn, Donny & Marie... and so many more.

These unforgettable variety shows have made an indelible impression on our hearts. We hear a familiar tune being sung by one of our favorite 70's artists and that warm, fuzzy feeling returns - we instantly recall the time and place where we first heard that song, and we find ourselves humming the tune and can't get it out of our heads.

"Boob Tube" is a show that will transport you back to those magical 70's. Don Pope and Rhonda Padmos return to the Main Stage with their live band, playing the songs that you love. This show is a nostalgic trip down Memory Lane.

"Girls Like Us"
Featuring the beloved music of Carly Simon, Carole King, and Joni Mitchell
Produced by Don Pope and Rhonda Padmos
Opening Night: Tuesday, November 20 Party 6:30 pm / Show 7:30 pm
Continuing Shows: November 27, & December 4, 11 & 18 - 7:30 pm

In their inimitable style, Rhonda Padmos and Don Pope present the timeless music of 60's icons, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Carly Simon. These women are three of the most enduring and important women in popular music. They collectively represent, in their lives and their songs, a great swath of girls who came of age in the late 1960s. This show captures the music of the 60's like no other!

Don and Rhonda are well-known musicians from Canada who arrived in Puerto Vallarta in the 1980's as guest musicians on the television show, The Love Boat. Currently, in their 6th season at Act II with shows like Come Together (Beatles tribute), Rumors (Fleetwood Mac tribute), California Dreamin' (Mamas & the Papas tribute), The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Sordid Lives, A Chorus Line and Tapestry (music of Carole King), Rhonda and Don are thrilled to bring this exciting new show to Act II!
