THEATER: Three more chances to see ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ at WSHS

If you haven’t already seen it – or if you want to see it again – you have three more chances to enjoy “Little Shop of Horrors” at West Seattle High School, starting tomorrow (Wednesday) night. Here’s the synopsis:

The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out-of-this-world origins and intent toward global domination.

Also forwarded in email from readers, this review from WSHS’s student news publication, hailing the “powerhouse vocals” of Lucy Warren as Audrey II – catch a clip of her singing here. Showtimes Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday are at 7:30 pm; you can get tickets in advance here – including an online option (choose the “virtual tickets” option at the top of that page). WSHS is at 3000 California SW – to get to the theater, enter through the courtyard off the south end of the school’s parking lot.

    I agree with that reviewer, we saw the show on Saturday, it was awesome!

    We have so much Westside Pride in ALL of the amazing student performers who have brought Little Shop of Horrors to life on the West Seattle High School stage!  The BAND, under the direction of WSHS instructor Ethan Thomas is ON POINT! The transcendent physicality of all the dancer/actors, including the people who so ably play the effervescent, gymnastic “drunks” on Skid Row is marvelous, and the SINGING VOICES of the lead characters and back up singers are as good as any you will hear on Broadway!  WSHS instructor Daniel Wiener outdid himself, directing his first musical at West Seattle High School, and so did technical director, WSHS instructor Joe Lambright.  I know that I, for one, will not be able to restrain myself from attending this masterpiece of a musical for a second time!

    The show is amazing! Everyone did a great job, but the dentist was especially hilarious. And the puppeteers were fantastic. Great job cast and crew!

    I love this show and this is an especially good staging. These teachers are doing an incredible job with the arts program and the performances they’re getting out of these kids across the board. I hope they keep trying grow performing arts there. Great job TEACHERS!!

    My friend Casey just let me know:

    KUOW’s Arts Critic Mike Davis just told EVERYONE to go see Little Shop of Horrors at WSHS!

    He hasn’t been to a HS play in years and this is as good as any community theatre and entirely produced by the students.

    CONGRATS on the radio shout-out!!!
