WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Little Shop Of Horrors, starring many local students, is hitting the stage at the White Plains Performing Arts Center Nov. 13-15.
Sixteen middle and high school students from around Westchester County are busy rehearsing the classic musical.
This monster musical is about a hapless florist shop clerk, Seymour, who offers his tender love and care to a plant that feeds on human blood. This plant, Audrey II, named after Seymour’s secret love, quickly becomes a fascinating attraction in neighborhood called Skid Row. The score, composed by Alan Menken with book and lyrics by Howard Ashman follows the style of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown.
The cast features Kathleen Fox of Mamaroneck and Kate Jaffee of Rye Brook as Pat Martin and Mrs. Luce, two smooth-talking business people trying to profit from the plant. The cast also includes Kelly Ainsworth, Alex Arlotta, Simone Carcer, Mary DelVecchio, Anna Gizzo, Rose Hornyak, Temia Innamorato, Elana Mariani, Kristen Myllek, Ashleigh Nutt, Francesca Ricigliano, Catherine Serra, Zack Tashoff, and Nick Varsames.
The production is directed by Ariana Moses, WPPAC’s director of education, with music direction by Paul Loman and choreography by Lexie Fennell Frare.
Little Shop Of Horrors wil be performed at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 13 and Saturday, Nov. 14 and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 15 at the White Plains Performing Arts Center on the third level of City Center off Mamaroneck Avenue in downtown White Plains.
