You know we are big fans of high school theater. It’s the perfect place to expose your kids to theater. It’s usually G-rated, and kids love watching other kids perform. Best of all, it’s nearby and reasonable. What a great way to support the arts and make your kids theater lovers! Check out what’s on at Loch Raven High School:

By Howard Ashman and Alan Menken
Directed by Erin E. Confair
Musical Director: Patty DeLisle

WHEN: March 1, 2, and 3, at 7:00 PM
Loch Raven High School auditorium, 1212 Cowpens Avenue, Baltimore

Based on the 1960 film by Roger Corman and screenplay by Charles Griffin, Little Shop of Horrors is a rock musical about a florist shop worker who raises a plant that feeds on human blood. The audience can look forward to the music, composed by Menken in the style of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown, with several well-known tunes, including the title song, "Skid Row (Downtown)," "Somewhere That's Green" and "Suddenly, Seymour."

Junior Jeremy Sierakowski (Seymour) said, “It’s quite a commitment that everyone is dedicated to. This experience has shown a different side of me, and not a day was spent regretting being a part of this.” Director Erin E. Confair added, “The students of Loch Raven High School never cease to amaze me with their talent and tireless effort. The chemistry that this cast has on stage is truly incomparable. They prove year after year that with hard work and dedication we can create magic. We can even create a man-eating plant!”

Junior Allison Farrell (Chiffon) exclaimed, “Look out, because here comes Audrey 2! Little Shop of Horrors is going to blow your mind. We have never done anything like this, and I think everyone will be surprised when Little Shop of Horrors takes over Loch Raven!”
