The Lone Star College-University Park (LSC-University Park) Drama Department will stage the beloved sci-fi musical "Little Shop of Horrors," from June 27 to 30, 2024 in the new Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) building. The cult classic, featuring music by Alan Menken with book and lyrics by Howard Ashman, masterfully blends dark humor, catchy tunes, and 1950s sci-fi B-movie vibes.

The musical centers around Seymour Krelborn, a down-and-out floral assistant who stumbles upon a mysterious plant with a surprising appetite for fresh blood. This newfound "Audrey II" propels Seymour into overnight fame. As the carnivorous plant grows, so do its demands, forcing Seymour into a desperate struggle to keep his newfound success, his love interest Audrey, and the world safe.

"We are thrilled to showcase the immense talent of our Lone Star College-University Park students, Klein ISD, and community members in this classic and captivating production of 'Little Shop of Horrors,'" said William Grayson, professor of theater at LSC-University Park.

The cast includes Robby Rutzen as Seymour Krelborn, Michael Barnhart as Audrey II, and Sara Tartar as Audrey.

The musical is a cautionary tale highlighting the dangers of unchecked ambition and the moral cost of pursuing fame and success.
