Lakehill Preparatory School's talented musical theater students will bring Little Shop of Horrors to the Lakehill stage on Friday, November 11, and Saturday, November 12, at 7:00 p.m. A preview of the musical will be performed for students in grades 7-12 on November 11 at 9:00 a.m.
Little Shop of Horrors is a sci-fi comedy-horror musical with an electrifying 1960's pop/rock score by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. In this gleefully gruesome musical, Seymour Krelborn, a meek florist's assistant happens upon a strange plant, which he affectionately names "Audrey II" after his crush and co-worker, Audrey, at the flower shop.
Little does he know that this strange and unusual plant will not only bring the little flower shop more revenue, but also develop a soulful R&B voice and an unquenchable thirst for human blood. As Audrey II grows bigger and meaner, the carnivorous plant promises limitless fame and fortune to Seymour, so long as he continues providing a fresh supply of blood. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's extraterrestrial origins and intent toward world domination. Can Seymour foil the plant's evil plans?
"Little Shop of Horrors
has been a favorite of mine for a long time," said co-director Mark Guerra. "It is the first musical that I was in as a freshman in high school. I just played a hobo, but it was the greatest experience of my life.
"This summer, after looking at the enrollment for our Musical Theater class, Mr. Herron and I decided that we had the perfect group to pull of this 'monster' of a show. We are using a live band for the production and bringing back choreographer Lela Bell. We've rented Broadway-style puppets to round it all out!"
While all ages are invited to attend, the musical is recommended for students age ten and older.
