The Ballard High School Playmakers are preparing to stage the fun, sci-fi, comedy musical Little Shop of Horrors. The popular musical follows the tale of Seymour Krelbourn, a meek flower-shop assistant.
“Seymour discovers a strange plant that he affectionately names “Audrey II” after his crush at the shop. But this plant is like no other: it sings it swears, and it thirsts for human blood! As the carnivorous plant grows bigger and more aggressive, it promises Seymour fame and fortune if he continues to provide fresh supplies of blood. What will Seymour do with this unusual species?”
The cast features 32 Ballard High School students, and the play is directed by BHS Theatre Director Shawn M. Riley.
Performance Details:The performances will be on March 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23 at the Earl Kelly Center for Performing Arts at Ballard High School, 1418 NW 65th Street, Seattle, Washington, 98117. Shows start at 7:30 pm.
Tickets:Reserved seating tickets for Little Shop of Horrors are available for purchase at https://showtix4u.com. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students/seniors.
Also opening soon is Curtains by the fabulous Woodland Park Players. Their mission is to create the opportunity for adult members of the Woodland Park community to get involved in the many aspects of theater while creating lasting friendships that build a stronger community and to support arts programs in neighborhood public schools.
“Curtains is a parody of 1950s “whodunnit” theatre mysteries featuring a hilarious company of characters including a very camp director, a bitter critic, clueless investors, ambitious actresses and a lone detective who moonlights as an aspiring musical theatre performer. The talentless leading lady of the cowboy musical, Robbin’ Hood of the Old West is murdered onstage during curtain call, and the whole cast are suspects. It is up to Lieutenant Frank Cioffi to save the show, solve the case, and maybe even find love. “
Curtains shows March 22-24 and 29-30 at Shoreline Community College, and tickets can be purchased here
