Little Shop of Horrors

Broadwater Academy Performing Arts Department presents: Little Shop of Horrors

This spring, Broadwater Academy’s Performing Arts Department will present the classic Broadway musical “Little Shop of Horrors,” a dark comedy, running April 26 and 27 at 7pm. The story follows young botanical genius Seymour Krelborn who works in Mushnik’s Skid Row Florists, a failing floral shop. During a total eclipse of the sun, he discovers a new breed of plant, whom he names Audrey II. While the plant brings in big business to the shop there is one slight issue. Instead of plant food, Audrey II hungers for blood; that is, human blood. As Audrey II begins to grow, he promises Seymour fame and fortune, but only if he keeps providing blood. Seymour then has to discover how much fame and success mean to him, and decide if anyone truly deserves to die. 

The cast includes Broadwater students from grades 7-12, with Delaney Petka starring as Seymour Krelborn, Emma Philpot as Audrey, Tommy Ertle as Mr. Mushnik, Ivan Whitaker as Audrey II, and Jesse Floyd as Orin Scrivello. Other cast members include schoolgirls Crystal, Ronnette and Chiffon, played by Nicholle Perkins, Ava Webb, and Elise Adler, as well as Reporters played by Addison Morris and Derek Boyle. 

The score, played by a live pit band composed of both Broadwater students and teachers, is inspired by the music of the 1960s. The show also features four handmade Audrey II puppets of varying sizes, puppeteered by students Addison Morris and John Queen. 

The performance runs for roughly under two hours with a fifteen minute intermission. The performances will be held in the Broadwater Academy Fine Arts Center on April 26 and 27 at 7pm, and tickets are free.
