Jan. 30, 2019: Come in from the cold and watch hometown talent perform in Bronxville High School’s Little Shop of Horrors! Seymour, a hapless floral shop worker, yearns for fame, fortune, and the affection of his crush, Audrey. But Audrey is engaged to Orin the dentist. Desperate, Seymour obeys a plant—Audrey II—that promises to fulfill his wishes in exchange for fresh blood. What could go wrong? Audrey II grows more demanding. The body count goes up and includes Orin, Audrey, and Seymour! And to add to the troubles, there’s scientific interest in creating more of the blood-thirsty vegetation. Will the planet be saved from Audrey II? Will Seymour and Audrey ever be together?
Join us. The plant sings! Everybody sings! The musical is presented by Bronxville High School actors and musicians and is directed by high school choral director Pamela Simpson. Through generous support of The Bronxville School Foundation and the PTA, we have worked with professional puppeteer Fergus Walsh to create our own Audrey II puppets. It's going to be a fun night! Three nights only: Thursday, February 7, at 5:00 pm, Friday, February 8, at 7:00 pm, and Saturday, February 9, at 7:00 pm.
Tickets (via Eventbrite) available to the general public starting today, Wednesday, January 30. The links for each performance are:
