Presented by the Cedar Valley Community Theatre, the show promises to put the “howl” in Halloween with enough laughs and chills to satisfy anyone who loves dark comedy, great doo-wop music and “B” grade monster movies from the 1950s and 60s.
“This is not your typical Broadway musical,” says Dr. Lee Montgomery, the show’s director. “Based on Roger Corman’s 1960 cult classic film with the same title, “Little Shop of Horrors” blends together the Faustian legend, a Motown inspired Greek chorus, and a healthy dose of slapstick comedy in just the right proportions to send chills up our spines and tickle our funny bones.”
The music, composed by Menken in the style of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop, and early Motown, includes several well-known tunes, including the title song, "Skid Row (Downtown)", "Somewhere That's Green", and "Suddenly, Seymour.”
Past productions of the Cedar Valley Theatre Company have included “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” “Annie,” and “Hello Dolly.” Tickets are currently on sale from cast members, at www.CEDARTHEATRE.org, at Main Street books or by calling (435) 586-5124.
