SSU Theater Presents Little Shop of Horrors

Victoria Reffit, Staff Reporter

Horrendous, haunting, and hilarious are all words that can be used to describe the latest show Shawnee State’s Theater Department has put on this fall, Little Shop of Horrors. Through the second weekend of showings, Shawnee’s Theater Department gave local community an opportunity to see them perform. Show times were Oct. 10 at 7:30pm and Oct. 12 at 2:00pm. Tickets for this show went fast. That’s right- ‘went’! All  showings of SSU’s Little Shop of Horrors were sold out!

Little Shop of Horrors by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman (the same people who wrote The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast) tells a tale much different than their previous Disney Princess shows. This is a show about an evil man-eating plant that craves fresh blood! This show has lots of action, drama and laughs for all who come out to see it. What better way to start this Halloween season than with a horror production? Be sure to support the next SSU Theater Department show, Cowgirls, in November!
