Farmers Alley opens with “Little Shop”
Based on the 1950s B-Movie, this campy musical (with songs by the famous Disney songwriting team Alan Menken & Howard Ashman) tells the familiar tale. Meek florist Seymour Krelborn has discovered a new breed of plant life. But this odd Venus-Flytrap looking plant doesn’t eat Miracle-Gro: it feeds on human blood! Can Seymour stop this R&B singing, man-eating plant, get the girl of his dreams and save the world (and everyone in the theatre)?
Little Shop will be directed by Kathy Mulay, who has directed some Farmers Alley’s most successful musicals (Cabaret, The Secret Garden, Dogfight). Marie McColley Kerstetter serves as music director. NYC and Los Angeles professionals Harrison Bryan and Melody Ricketts will be portraying the iconic leads Seymour and Audrey. The rest of the cast is filled with local talents Lou Price, Stephen Anthony Grey, Christy Lee Coleman, Jasmine Franklin, Tia L. Pinson, and Brian Panse with a special appearance by the theater’s artistic director, Jeremy Koch, as the sadistic dentist, Orin Scrivello.
Little Shop runs September 18 through October 11. Tickets are $35.00 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and $30 on Thursdays. Seniors 65 and above receive $2 off per ticket. Reservations can be made by calling our Box Office at (269) 343-2727 or visiting www.farmersalleytheatre.com.
