Little Shop of Horrors

Little Shop of Horrors

COS Performing Arts Department will be presenting the cult classic "Little Shop of Horrors"

A singing plant….a daring albeit reluctant hero…a sweet girl…a demented dentist.  Come out to Mushnick’s Florist shop and meet them all.  Little Shop of Horrors is the sci-fi smash musical devouring the hearts of audiences for over 30 years.  Little Shop of Horrors has been a cult classic for years with the original movie released in 1960 and the Off-Broadway premiere in 1982. These were followed by the remake of the film in 1986 which featured current day stars like Rick Moranis, Ellen Green and Steve Martin. Finally, in 2003 it made its official Broadway debut. 

"Little Shop of Horrors" (Music by Alan Menken, Book and Lyrics by Howard Ashman) tells the story of a down-and-out floral assistant who becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving, his love for his co-worker, and how his plans go awry when the plant's demands grow a little too wild!

Electromagnetic Soul Vehicle Project

How do you get to the underground city? Electromagnetic vehicles!

"From between the atmospheric portal, we approach you. From the inner Earth, we call. From the deepest depth of the inner ocean, we arrive, The Electromagnetic Soul Vehicle."

And with those words Dave Theno, local area musician and teacher, kicks off an epic adventure that will take us to the lost city of Telos, located deep beneath beautiful Mt. Shasta. The journey will introduce us to the legends of Telos, Atlantis, Rosalia, Adama, the greys, the lizard folk, and so much more! Sounds fun doesn’t it? Well then come join us!

We are looking primarily for dancers and singers who can dance or move well. The initial plan is for this to be a rock opera, with very little straight speaking parts. We are creating this work from scratch so the process will be split into two parts.

  • The first part will be a fall workshop that beginning on Sept 8 will meet every other Saturday for 6 hours. These sessions will be essential to the creative process and those who enroll will have an inside track to being cast in the production.
    • THEA 1301, Musical Comedy Workshop - CRN: 7398 (credit)
    • THEA 0531, Community Theatre - CRN: 7399 (non-credit)
  • The second part will consist of auditions and rehearsals culminating in performances on January 25-27. We will let you know when registration is open for that class.

Please Note: Both sections are classes that you will need to enroll in.
