Director's Notes

As the world is seemingly spinning out of control with global pandemics, earthquakes, economic strife, and political upheaval, what better time to produce an end of the world satire complete with a horror comedy rock score and a giant carnivorous plant from outer space? With music by Alan Menken and lyrics and a book by Howard Ashman (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin). Little Shop of Horrors is the perfect show that provides the right amount of nostalgia with biting social satire. When a socially awkward floral shop clerk named Seymour finds a bizarre new plant after a solar eclipse, he and his colleagues quickly discover that this odd looking seedling may be the key to drawing new customers into their floundering Skid Row flower shop, and giving Seymour everything he ever desired, however at a terrible cost. It’s a tricky dilemma - how do you stage a piece of theatre during this time? The performers and producers have been extremely supportive of this production, and plunged into the intense work. I have been incredibly lucky to work with both a cast and creative team in which each member is unbelievably creative, responsible, and passionate about his or her individual position. With their support, my focus has been able to rest solely on storytelling. I know that art heals, inspires, and entertains. While art certainly will not solve all our problems, it certainly will get us through it.
