This show is sure to be a sell-out

May 24-28, 2017
Directed by Jade Nicholas

Little Shop of Horrors, written by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, is a campy and deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical and has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years.  Ashman and Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind the popular show featuring jazzy tunes, early rock, doo-wop and Motown.  Frank Oz of Sesame Street  and Muppet fame was the director of the movie.

Meek flower shop assistant Seymour (Caleb Freeman) pines for co-worker Audrey (Allison Dodge).  During a total eclipse, Seymour discovers an unusual plant he names Audrey II (Molly Burkhart/Ashley Trotter) which feeds only on human flesh and blood.  The growing plant attracts a great deal of business for the previously struggling store,  and the potty-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Seymour as long as he keeps feeding it.  Over time though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s intentions toward global domination!

The strong cast brings this fun and popular musical to life:  Caleb Freeman, Allison Dodge,  Greg Swartz,, Molly Burkhart, Ashley Trotter, Del Stanley, Stephanie Marsh, Hank Boulanger, Michael Johnson, Shelbi Miller, Jamie Strong, Rhonda Childers, Kipper Kesler, Jack Briggs, Ethan Settle, Charlotte  Worden, DeeDee Wells, Betsy Stone, Annette Nethery.  And don’t miss the Doo-Wop girls:  Lorenzo M.R, Jocelyn Donegan, Bethany Newsom.
