Beaumont High School Theatre Arts Dept. will present Little Shop of Horrors, a production based on the film by Roger Corman, with screenplay written by Charles Griffith, at the Beaumont High School Performing Arts Theater.
A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, “Little Shop of Horrors” has devoured the hearts of theatergoers for more than 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 (Jacob Stockwell) stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” (Braden Claus) after his coworker crush Audrey (Lilly Spencer). This quick witted, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down-and-out Seymour as long as he keeps feeding it – blood.
Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out-of-this-world origins and intent toward global domination. “Little Shop of Horrors” is one of the longest-running off-Broadway shows and makes its Beaumont High School debut March 7 -10.
The Beaumont High School Performing Arts Theater is located at 39139 Cherry Valley Blvd. Plenty of parking is available in the North parking lot.
Tickets range from $10 to $14 and can be purchased online at showtix4u.com or at the theater box office the day of the show.
