Now in their 22nd year, the Tappan Players announce the 2012 performance of award-winning musical Little Shop of Horrors by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken. Under the direction of Alex Mendiola and Kathy Kauffmann, the production will feature more than 150 Tappan middle-school students.
Little Shop of Horrors is a rock musical version of a 1960’s B Horror movie. It is the story of Seymore, a sensitive botanist, who discovers a mysterious new type of plant, one that has a taste for human blood.
“A challenging part of any Little Shop production is the creation of Audry II, the bloodthirsty plant ,” says director Mendiola. “Our Audry II will be human in form, comprised of Tappan students and ‘growing’ throughout the entire production!”
Tickets for Little Shop of Horrors will be available for $10 March 1 through showtix4u.com and limited tickets will be available at the door. Show times are Friday, March 23 at 7 p.m; Saturday, March 24 at 1 p.m.; and Sunday, March 25, at 1 p.m. Shows will take place at Tappan Middle School, 2251 East Stadium.
