Curtain to Rise March 1 on Wooster School’s Production of Little Shop!

Wooster's first production of "Little Shop of Horrors" will be on March 1st at 7:30pm. Be sure to reserve your tickets soon!

“Little Shop of Horrors,” a quirky rock-and-roll style musical, comes to Wooster’s Black Box Theatre beginning March 1 at 7:30pm. The production tells the story of a down-and out skid row floral assistant who discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon "Audrey II" grows into an ill-tempered, huge, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination! Written by the award-winning team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, the show presents musical theatre at its twisted best.

Performances are Friday, March 1 and 8 at 7:30pm and Saturday, March 2 and 9 at 2:00pm and 7:30pm. Please contact Anne Gilson for reservations: anne.gilson@woosterschool.org. Seating is limited, and demand is high, so please reserve your seats early.

Leading players include Sara Svenningsen '14 of Katonah, NY, Oliver Kisielius '14 of Wilton, CT, Aaron Young '16 of Norwalk, CT, Greg Schmitt '13 of Ridgefield, CT, Daniel Berger '16 of South Salem, NY, and Kai Bernardini '13 of Yorktown Heights, NY.

Rachel Bakish '13 of Ridgefield, CT, Madison Becker '13 of Ridgefield, CT, Amber March-Bruce '15 of North Salem, NY, Caroline McArdle '14 of Sandy Hook, CT, Lindsay Cronin '17 of Danbury, CT, and Sophie Rundhaug '17 of Danbury, CT have strong supporting roles.

Originally based on a low-budget film in 1960 featuring a young Jack Nicholson, “Little Shop of Horrors” debuted Off-Broadway in 1982 and made its Broadway debut in 2003.
