Run Crew and Ushers Needed for MIT Musical Theatre Guild's LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS
The MIT Musical Theatre Guild is looking for people to fill positions in the run crew and to be ushers for its IAP 2014 production of Little Shop of Horrors. Performance Dates are Jan 31, Feb 1 & 6-8 at 8PM and Feb 2 at 2PM. Ushers will receive a free ticket for the night they usher. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to express interest in these positions.
In Little Shop of Horrors, a down-and out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon "Audrey II" grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination!
One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies has become a household name, thanks to a highly successful film version and a score by the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, who redefined the animated musical film with Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. Charming, tuneful and hilarious, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS never fails to entertain. A small cast, band and unit set make the other aspects of production a snap.
Cast, production staff, and orchestra positions are open to everyone, although preference will be given to MIT students and community members in accordance with the MTG constitution.
The MIT community includes all MIT students, alumni, faculty, staff, their immediate families, and Wellesley students. The membership of the Musical Theatre Guild consists of anyone who has worked on an MTG show within the past year, regardless of MIT affiliation.
MTG is a volunteer organization; compensation is not provided to production staff, cast, or orchestra members.
