Chuck's Corner: Little Shop of Horrors!

A failing flower shop operated by the cranky Mr. Mushnik (Morgan Rosengarten) and his hapless, naive young employee Seymour (Dan Reeves) on Skid Row is the setting for the hilarious rock horror musical playing tonight and Saturday at 7:00 PM in the Norris Family Theater. 


Seymour, who pines for the affection of Audrey (Stefany Schechter), brings a mysterious plant (think of a large Venus fly-trap) to the shop and discovers that it is ravenous for human blood and flesh.


The plant (he names Audrey II) brings fame to Seymour and business to Mushnik, who adopts the naive lad as a son.


Business is booming at Mushnik's Flower Shop!


Sating the talking, demanding plant's appetite is Seymour's ethical dilemma. What (or who) to feed the monster?! One candidate is Audrey's outrageous boyfriend Orin (Max Barrett), a sadistic, abusive dentist who's addicted to nitrous oxide!


The laughs come fast and furious in this show, and the music is '60s rock 'n roll, doo-wop and early Motown ably supported by a chorus of teeny-boppers.



The surprise ending is over-the-top.
