O'Kane Theatre to Present Cult Classic 'Little Shop of Horrors'

theaterThe O'Kane Theatre has announced that its Fall 2014 production will be a stage presentation of "Little Shop of Horrors," the 1957 record-breaking hit from Howard Ashman and Alan Menken. "Outlandish, charming and delightfully hilarious," the production is an affectionate spoof of popular 1950's science fiction films, and one of the longest-running off-Broadway shows of all time.

The story centers around the life of Seymour, a down-and-out Skid Row floral assistant who becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant (which he names Audrey II) that has a mysterious craving for human flesh.

The University community and the public are invited to watch the action and sing along to such popular songs as "Skid Row," "Somewhere That's Green," "Suddenly, Seymour" and, of course, "Feed Me," in an evening of energetic song and dance.

"Little Shop of Horrors" opens on Friday, Oct. 31 with an 8 p.m. curtain call. Tickets go on sale online beginning Monday, Oct. 27, and the performance schedule is as follows:
