The Mustang Stage Company of Palmetto High will open their spring musical, Little Shop of Horrors, on Thursday, April 26, in the school’s auditorium. A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theater goers for over 30 years. (Pictured are: Savana Horne as Audrey and Cameron Woodson as Seymour Krelborn (Photo credit: Escobar Photography)One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows, Little Shop Of Horrors, the charmingly tongue in cheek comedy has been produced worldwide to incredible success.
Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.
The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his coworker crush. This loud-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!
Directed by theater teacher Will Ragland, who also provides the voice for Audrey II, the show features 16 student actors and technicians. The show’s musical director is chorus teacher Jared Fricks and the choreography was provided by Anderson University dance and theater student Danielle Jeanjaquet. The set and costumes are designed by senior Cameron Woodson, who also stars as Seymour Krelborn, and the lighting was designed by John King, technical director of Mill Town Players.
Little Shop of Horrors runs for 4 performances only, April 26-29, Thursday through Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 3pm. Tickets are only $7 at the door. The show is appropriate for all ages. Come early for the best seats.
