Little Shop of Horrors
Templeton High School Drama presents "Little Shop of Horrors", the wildly successful off-Broadway musical production.
The American High School Theatre Festival has recognized THS drama director, Catherine Kingsbury, as one of the top 40 high school drama directors in all of North America-for the second time! This award allows her to bring a cast and crew to the International Fringe Festival this summer. THS Drama students will be presenting "Little Shop of Horrors" in Edinburgh, Scotland in August 2016. All the proceeds from ticket sales, concessions and your generous donations will help get them there!
There will only be three performances. Our spring production of "Cinderella" averaged over 230 attendees for each of eight shows. Don't wait to buy your tickets at the door!
LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS is coming to eat Templeton alive! The classic Alan Menken/ Howard Ashman comedy horror rock musical explodes onstage with dynamic dance numbers and memorable songs. This clever satire mixes Motown, Doo-Wop, and Rock and Roll in a send-up on B Movies and the American Dream, and based on the 1960's Roger Corman film about a meek florist who makes a Faustian pact with a man-eating plant to win the girl he loves. It's funny, smart and gleefully twisted fun performed by Templeton High Drama. Don't miss your chance to see this hit at home before THS Drama takes it overseas to perform at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival this summer. Don't feed the Plants!
