On March 13th and 14th, 2020, New Providence High School is pleased to present the sci-fi musical comedy favorite Little Shop of Horrors. Tickets are now on sale at www.npsd.k12.nj.us!
According to StageAgent:
“Little Shop of Horrors, … an electrifying 1960s pop/rock score by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, features Seymour Krelborn as a meek and dejected assistant at a floral shop who happens upon a strange plant, which he affectionately names “Audrey II” after his crush at the shop. Little does he know that this strange and unusual plant will develop a soulful R&B voice, a potty mouth, and an unquenchable thirst for HUMAN BLOOD.”
What happens next, you will have to see to believe!
But what happens in January, February and early March at New Providence High School is where the true magic occurs for the students. This is when cast, pit and crew work hard as individuals. They hone their skills, steadily become separate, talented units – each important and indispensable – finally culminating into a cohesive, entertaining production.
During these months, the cast members memorize lines, choreography, vocals while working with one another and off one another. Pit members, too, have much to learn and memorize, and quickly move from solo musical instruments to an orchestra without which, the story is only partially told. Crew accomplishes everything and anything needed from building the set, creating lighting and sound design for the production, and working behind the scenes during the actual performance.
Come out in March to see what these talented students have accomplished. Show times for Little Shop of Horrors are Friday, March 13th at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, March 14th at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. For more about the New Providence School District music and performing arts programs, please visit http://www.npsd.k12.nj.us//Domain/15
