August 26 – 30: Little Shop of Horrors
Book and lyrics by Howard Ashman, music by Alan Menken, the team behind Disney's Little Mermaid, Beauty & The Beast, and Aladdin. Presented by The Barnstormers.
What do you get when you cross a schlocky 60s horror flick about a large man-eating plant with a do-wop chorus and a tender love story? You propagate a hybrid brimming over with the life force energy of musical theatre at its quirkiest and best. Motown-style songs, vegetative puppetry, and an out-of-this-world story make Little Shop a show not to be missed.
This off-beat and darkly-comic musical is not recommended for younger children. It is highly recommended that parents who are unfamiliar with the story check with the theater regarding any concerns prior to bringing children to this event.
