Little Shop of Horrors
The University of Maine School of Performing Arts presents: Little Shop of Horrors, opening Friday, 10/24/14
The University of Maine School of Performing Arts presents their 2014 fall musical production of Little Shop of Horrors. The delightfully devilish sci-fi Broadway musical smash hit featuring a giant man eating plant, a trio of singing ladies and outlandish characters is going to leave you begging for more.
What happens when you keep feeding your desires? How much of yourself are you willing to lose for gain? The plot spins around Seymour, a geeky floral assistant who comes across a new breed of plant that promises to take him and his lady crush from the slums of Skid Row, but not without a steep price.
Little Shop of Horrors is directed by Marcia Douglas and features a talented cast and crew of School of Performing Arts students and will have evening performances on October 24-25, 30-31 and November 1at 7:30PM and matinee shows on October 26 and November 2 at 2:00PM at Hauck Auditorium.
Scenic designer, Dan Bilodeau, remarks “working in educational theatre is a great experience because a lot of the students haven’t done many projects like this before and they bring a fresh new perspective as well as a great energy to the project.”
Maine Masque, the student organization that works closely with the School of Performing Arts, is going to be at each Little Shop performance, save for the last, giving audience members the opportunity to be photographed with Audrey II, the giant plant that stars in the show.
The Halloween night performance will highlight a costume contest hosted and judged by Z107.3 DJ Paul Wolfe. Winners will receive a photo with Audrey II and a prize, as well.
