Little Shop of Horrors on stage May 5-8

See the exotic plant “Audrey II” come to life on stage at Lone Star College-CyFair in the May 5 through May 8 production of “Little Shop of Horrors.”

A down-and-out, skid-row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers “Audrey II.”  But soon the plant grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore, who later reveals itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination!

 “Little Shop of Horrors” is one of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time. This affectionate spoof of 1950’s sci-fi movies has become a house-hold name thanks to a highly successful film version and a score by the song-writing team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken. This duo redefined the animated musical film genre with Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”, “Beauty and The Beast” and “Aladdin.”

LSC-CyFair’s Alex Qian, artistic director of vocal activities, and Matt Albrecht, stage director, teams up to produce this charming, tuneful and hilarious end-of-the-semester show.

In addition, Energe Spa is teaming up with LSC-CyFair to offer a Mother’s Day performance deal.
