‘Little Shop of Horrors’ continues to amaze
May 8, 2014
TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Truckee High School drama program, under the direction of Peggy Boelk, is pleased to continue its presentation of “Little Shop of Horrors,” a musical comedy about a skid-row florist’s “mean green mother” of a monster plant. There are approximately 30 students involved in the production that has amazed audiences.
Seymour Krelborn is a nerdy orphan working at Mushnik’s, a flower shop in urban Skid Row. He harbors a crush on fellow co-worker Audrey Fulquard. One day as Seymour is seeking a new mysterious plant, he finds an unidentified plant which he calls Audrey II. The other-worldly plant seems to have a craving for blood and soon begins to sing for his supper. Will Audrey II take over the world or will Seymour and Audrey defeat it?
“Little Shop of Horrors” is the off-Broadway musical comedy by composer Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman, collaborators on “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast” and “Aladdin.” The pair have won two Grammy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards and two Academy Awards for their work. The show dates and times are May 9 and 10, 7 p.m.; May 11, 2 p.m.; May 16 and 17, 7 p.m.
Tickets are available at the Truckee Donner Recreation Department and the Truckee High School Library. Tickets for adults are $15 and for students are $10.
