The Musical Society of Springville-GI High School is currently in rehearsal for their production of Little Shop of Horrors! Approximately 40 actors have been rehearsing since lateNovember, and have been recently joined by nearly 20 crew members, and a dozen pit musicians, all of whom are students. There are also 20 teachers and adult volunteers and musicians who are involved in the production, direction, and construction of the musical.
The story focuses on our wistful hero, Seymour, and his beloved Audrey as they struggle to find some way out of the lowlife-urban streets of Skid Row while working at Mrs. Mushnik’s flower shop. But when Seymour discovers a seemingly inconspicuous—but bloodthirsty—plant, which he names Audrey II, his entire life changes.
Little Shop of Horrors (book and lyrics by Howard Ashman, music by Alan Menken) will be performed in Lyle G. Palmer Auditorium on March 10 and 11 at 7:30 p.m. and on March 12 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students and seniors. Tickets can be purchased at the door or at www.springvillegi.org starting on Friday, Feb. 24.
