Shasta College Theatre Arts Department

Summer 2019

upload.pngREDDING, CA - this summer, the Shasta College Theatre Department is excited to present Little Shop of Horrors! 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 longest-running Off-Broadway shows.

An exciting pastiche of R&B, Gospel, Rock and Roll, and 1950’s Doo-wop, Little Shop of Horrors tells the story of meek floral assistant Seymour Krelbourn and a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” after his coworker crush. Set in the backdrop of downtown skid-row, Seymour is promised fame and prosperity by his carnivorous companion provided he keep Audrey II well fed with human blood - by any means necessary!

Performance dates are July 6th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th at 7pm in the Shasta College Theatre. Sunday matinees will be on the 7th, 14th, and 21st at 2pm. ASL interpretation will be available for the July 17th performance. Please contact the Shasta College Theatre box office at 530-242-7573 for more information on accommodation.
