By Catherine Shafranek
Lovejoy presents the iconic Little Shop of Horrors, a timeless musical composed by Alan Menken. Step backwards into a 1950’s sci-fi film with irresistible doo-wop songs, star-crossed lovers and the mutated plant that makes it all happen.
The story follows the hapless Seymour Krelborn (Bo Graham) who works in a failing flower shop owned by the always-pessimistic Mr. Mushnik (Alex Adkins). Things seem to take a turn for the better during a solar eclipse when Seymour finds a strange and interesting plant that he names Audrey II (voiced by Nathan Thorley) as an homage to his long time crush and co-worker Audrey (Erin Shafranek).
The plant brings Seymour unprecedented fame and fortune and even helps him catch the attention of the beautiful Audrey, but what will Seymour do when the ever-growing Audrey II’s cravings change from plant food to people?
Performances will be at the LHS Auditorium on Thursday, Jan. 17, Friday, Jan. 18 and Saturday, Jan. 19 at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale Jan. 8 online at www.Lovejoytheatre.org and are $10 for students and seniors and $15 for adults and may be purchased in advance or if available, at the door the night of the shows.
