Christ School Theater's fall musical this year is the campy and sweet Broadway hit, Little Shop of Horrors. Based on Roger Corman's infamous 1960s B horror movie of the same name, Little Shop tells the story of Seymour, a poor clerk in a low-rent flower shop, who discovers a new species of plant - as well as fortune and fame, all at the same time. Unfortunately, the plant turns out to be more than it seems. In an epic showdown, Seymour is forced to choose between good and evil in his pursuit of love. The show runs at 7:30 pm Thursday, October 23 through Sunday, October 26th in Pingree Theater, Christ School. General Admission is $10 and children/student admission is $5. Christ School students, faculty, and staff may attend for free.
