What an AMAZING turn out for our holiday show, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, Auditions! 87, that's right 87 individuals came out and gave fabulous auditions! I could have cast this show two or even three times! Unfortunately, we were unable to cast everyone. PLEASE do not let this discourage you from coming out and auditioning again! Remember theatre roles depend on many things: age, looks, conflicts with the rehearsal process, and much much more. We hope that if you were not cast, you will reach out and help us back stage, with tech, or front of house duties for our performances! Thank you for making this decision such a challenging one! I'm looking forward to working with all of you!
-Jessi Willmann, Director

What is Little Shop of Horrors?

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre-goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.

The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" - after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!

This version of the wildly produced classic features the original libretto we all know and love paired with the 2003 Broadway orchestrations.
