Hickory Ridge High School Theatre Presents Little Shop of Horrors
Thursday, February 7 – Friday, February 9, 2019
HRHS Auditorium, 7:00 PM, $7.00 admission
A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. 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 foul-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!
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 with technical aspects running the gamut from Broadway to PTA budgets. In its May 26, 2008 issue, Time magazine reported that Little Shop of Horrors ranked as the most frequently produced musical by U.S. high schools.
