Assumption College’s Department of Art, Music and Theatre will present Little Shop of Horrors, its 5th annual spring production at downtown Worcester's Hanover Theatre, on March 23 and 24.
Based on one of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows,
this affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies has become a household name. A
down-and out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he
discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving. Soon, "Audrey
II" grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore
who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite.
Audrey II finally reveals itself to be an alien creature poised for global
domination. Charming, tuneful and hilarious, Little Shop of Horrors
never fails to entertain. The music is hip and fun, while the budding love
story accompanied by an unexpected ending keeps audiences engaged until the
Approximately 30 Assumption
