Little Shop of Horrors!
November 12th -15th & November 19th -22nd
The Portage Area Community Theatre will bring to life a foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivorous plant in their upcoming production of Little Shop of Horrors. The book and lyrics are by Howard Ashman, music is by Alan Menken and the show will be directed by Dr. Tom McEvilly. Performances will be held at the Portage Center for the Arts – 301 E. Cook St – Portage.
Meek flower shop assistant Seymour pines for co-worker Audrey. During a total eclipse, he discovers an unusual plant, which he names Audrey II; he thinks he’s hit the jackpot. But there is a problem – the plant has an unusual craving for blood. The growing plant attracts a great deal of business for the previously struggling store. After Seymour feeds Audrey’s boyfriend, Orin, to the plant after Orin’s accidental death, Seymour must come up with more bodies for the increasingly bloodthirsty plant. It’s a classic “deal with the devil” story, with some dark humor. Performances are November 12th -15th & November 19th -22nd. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday shows at 7:30pm; Sunday shows at 2:00pm. Tickets are $18 for adults, and $12 for children (age 17 and under).
