Piedmont College Theatre presents ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ April 10-13

By Staff
DEMOREST - “Down on Skid Row, where the food is slop… and the rainbow’s just a no show,” hapless Seymour Krelborn tends to the barren florist shop that has housed him for all of his orphaned life. Day in and day out, he works alongside his unrequited love, Audrey, until a total eclipse of the sun brings life to a carnivorous plant. Seymour is sucked into a blood-curdling scheme that promises him everything his heart desires but soon realizes that fame and fortune come at a cost in the “Little Shop of Horrors,” Piedmont College’s final production of the 2013-2014 season.

“Little Shop of Horrors” runs April 10-13 at 7:30 p.m. and April 14 at 2 p.m. in the Swanson Center’s Black Box Theatre at 365 College Drive, Demorest. General admission tickets are $5, and Piedmont College faculty, staff, and students are admitted free of charge. For reservations, call the box office at 706-778-8500 ex. 1355. Get your tickets today because this will be a sell-out show!

Directed by guest artist Kim Wheetley, former director of the Southeast Center for Education in Arts at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga, “Little Shop of Horrors” is a dark comedy musical based on Roger Corman’s low budget 1960s film of the same name. In similar stylistic fashion, this production will incorporate classic cinematic horror elements. “The audience for our production will be invited onto a movie set to watch the filming of the play. Conventions of theatre and film will merge as the story combines elements of horror and comedy,” Wheetley said.
