The Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department’s award-winning children’s theatre group, The Star Bright Players, will present the rock musical comedy Little Shop of Horrors in May at Freedom Middle School, 750 Highway 96 W., Franklin.
Performances are at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, May 2, 3, and 4, and a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. on May 5.
Little Shop of Horrors is a deviously delectable sci-fi musical smash about Seymour, a geeky floral shop worker who finds out his Venus flytrap can speak and sing. He affectionately names the carnivorous plant “Audrey II” after his crush at the shop. As Audrey II grows bigger and meaner, the strange plant promises limitless fame and fortune to Seymour, as long as he continues providing the plant’s bizarre requests. The electrifying 1960s pop/rock score by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman is packed with non-stop thrills. Tickets are $10 each and available at www.wcparksandrec.com. Follow the link activities/community events. For more information, contact Alison Worden at (615) 786-0186 ext. 2513 or Alison.Worden@williamsoncounty-tn.gov.
