Horrors! Little Shop opens tomorrow in Campbell River

It’s Spring Musical time at Carihi again, and a man-eating plant has taken over the theatre!

It’s Spring Musical time at Carihi again, and a man-eating plant has taken over the theatre!

This year’s show Little Shop of Horrors promises to be the best one yet.

The show tells the story of Seymour Krelborn who works in a down and out florist shop on Skid Row.  His luck changes when he discovers a “strange and unusual plant” that helps him achieve everything he’s ever wanted, including the love of his co-worker Audrey.

The talented group of students at Carihi is very excited about opening night, including Michael Bernard, who plays Seymour Krelborn.

“I love this show,” says Bernard. “It’s unlike anything I have ever worked on and everyone is really committed to doing a great show. I think audiences will really enjoy it.”

Director Christine Knight agrees.

“I was able to fond amazing people to help me this year,” says Knight, “so the dancing is great, the singing is amazing, and the set looks fantastic.”

With Phil Cassidy as musical director, choreography from Heather Gordon Murphy and Lisa Marie Thomson, Vocal coaching from Amy Lelliot, and set design from John Bailey, you can expect to see a polished show, in all aspects of the production.

The show opens tomorrow and runs until Sunday, April 21.  Curtain is at 7 p.m., with matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.

Tickets are available for $12 at the door, or by calling the school at 250-286-6282.
