Granby Memorial High School Dramatic Arts is excited to present Little Shop of Horrors, a thrilling tale about a plant gone wild. Produced in cooperation with Music Theater International, Little Shop of Horrors features music by Alan Menkin and lyrics and book by Howard Ashman. This funny and entertaining show stars senior Isabel Gravlin as Audrey, and fellow seniors Trevor Thompson as Orin Scrivello, CeCe Nigri as Crystal, and Abby Caruso as an Urchin, with Christian Cusano and Luke Staples as Audrey 2.
Under the musical direction of Mrs. Shilansky, we are creating beautiful harmonies and wonderful musical moments. Our fabulous director Nikki [Currie-Huggard] has helped us bring our characters to life on stage. She is so excited for you to see the final result of all our hard work! Meg Funk has joined the production team as our dance instructor choreographing amazing dances filled with sass to match the rock’n’roll feel of the show. Holding us together making sure things run smoothly behind the scenes is our production coordinator and stage manager, Mrs. Burke. “Mama Spatch” (aka Janet Spatcher) and Catie Yanchak — with the help of the students on set crew—have brought Skid Row to life on our stage. From the dilapidated alley dumpsters to the flower shop where Audrey 2 makes her debut, this set is sure to leave you immersed in the rundown environment of downtown New York.
The cast is excited to share beautiful songs and energetic dances that they have been rehearsing for the past two months. It has been such a great experience being part of this show and seeing the progress made by the cast and crew. Rehearsals have been a blast, full of laughter and new friendships. We hope you’ll come see us “down on Skid Row” on Saint Patrick’s Day weekend – March 17 and 18 at 7 p.m. and March 19 at 2 p.m (Parental Discretion is Advised.)
