Encore Youth Theatre Presents
Shop of Horrors
gleefully gruesome musical is a cult classic, with a lineup of energetic songs
and an assortment of zany characters, this show will delight anyone with a taste
for the unusual!
Down-and-out, skid row
floral assistant Seymour becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an
exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood! Seymour, infatuated with
his co-worker Audrey, allows his craving for fame and fortune to seduce him into
playing nursemaid to the man-eating plant. Naming the plant after his secret
love, soon "Audrey II" grows into an ill-tempered, R&B-singing
carnivore who offers him his hearts desires…
One of the
longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof, based
on the campy Roger Corman 1960 flick, has become a household name. Thanks to a
highly successful 1986 film version starring Rick Moranis and a score by the
songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken. Their songs straddle the line
between joy and satire. Musically they invoke recognizable styles ('50s doo-wop,
saccharine Broadway love song), but the pointed, comical lyrics constantly
collide with the music's sensibilities and the contrast produces continuously
Theatre’s award-winning “dream
team” of Ali Whitman (as Director/Choreographer), and Sean Tamburrino (as
Musical Director, who will offer his talent as the R&B rocking voice of
Audrey II), bring a creative twist and passion to this production, making it one
of Encore’s most audience-anticipated productions in years!
Starring Helena Marie
Woods (currently in production for Nigel Lythgoe’s production of “Finding
Cinderella”) as Audrey, Drew Bradford as
