Theatre Performance: Little Shop of Horrors


Location: Patricia George Decio Theatre, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

The Department of Film, Television, and Theatre presents:

Little Shop of Horrors
Book and lyrics by Howard Ashman
Music by Alan Menken
Based on the film by Roger Corman, Screenplay by Charles Griffith

“Whatever you do, don’t feed the plants.”

Directed and choreographed by guest artist Nathan Halvorson, who previously helmed FTT’s production of Cabaret (2013), Little Shop will feature puppets by special effects makeup artist and puppeteer RJ Haddy, who was a finalist on Season 2 of the Syfy channel’s reality competition series Face Off.

Based on the B-movie by Roger Corman and featuring music and lyrics by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin), Little Shop of Horrors is perhaps best known for its alien carnivorous plant bent on world domination. “But really it’s about the lengths to which you’ll go to get the things you want,” says Halvorson. “Even good people get lost sometimes.”

November 18-22, 2015
