ANNA — The Anna High School Drama Club will present Anna’s 52nd musical production, “Little Shop of Horrors,” on March 6, 7 and 8.
With a cast, pit, and crew of nearly 100 Anna High school students, this rock and roll musical will transport you back to the comedy horror dramas of the 1950’s. Based on the 1960 movie, the show involves meek flower shop assistant Seymour pining for co-worker Audrey. During a total eclipse, he discovers an unusual plant he names Audrey II. The growing blood thirsty plant attracts a great deal of business for the previously struggling store. After Audrey’s boyfriend’s accidental death, Seymour feeds him to the plant. Not long after, Seymour must come up with more bodies for the increasingly hungry plant. Music written by Alan Menken the legendary composer of Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid, and Aladdin, songs include Suddenly Seymour, Little Shop of Horrors, Somewhere That’s Green, Dentist, and Feed Me.
