Martin Luther King JR EARLY COLLEGE
12/13-12/14/2012
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.

In the end, a transformed Scrooge realizes that "mankind should be my business" and that one little boy is of greater weight than all the gold in his strongbox. With a jaunty, melodious score, lots of dancing and a large cast which includes several children and one of the more irresistible lead roles ever, SCROOGE, THE STINGIEST MAN IN TOWN is a warm-hearted holiday treat for all!
