WATERVILLE — Waterville Creates! and Studio 93 will host two preview showings of a new cabaret show, “Lovers & Monsters,” at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 19, and at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 20, at Studio 93.

The show, which stars Kristyn Murphy, of Pittsfield, and Abbie Stands, of Allentown, Pennsylvania, will debut April 9 in New York City at the Metropolitan Room and is set to tour the East Coast and parts of the Midwest this year. The show is a creation of Pittsfield based multi-media company Krisolyte Productions, and AK Touring, a new company that focuses on bringing live entertainment and revenue to historic venues, in order to help keep them maintained, and to help in the restoration process, according to a news release from Krisolyte Productions.

“Lovers & Monsters” follows the story of two women brought together after an unintentional audition for the circus. “The colorful moments of romance, the childish ways we hold to, and the exotic people we encounter help shape the songs and stories in the narrative of these two women as they explore their own ‘Lovers & Monsters’ ” explains Stands.

“We are thrilled to be performing in many historic opera houses and theaters during our 2016 tour. So often these places are overlooked, but they have so much to offer their communities. We are striving to give people a reason to come visit and spend time in these amazing venues,” Murphy said in the release.

Tickets cost $15, for tickets, visit www.LoversandMonsters.com or call 877-318-4265.
