This production has been a long time coming. The cast originally prepared the show for the regular spring performance of 2020, but due to pandemic concerns were forced to postpone.
Most of the original cast members have returned, including Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 graduates, who are rejoining the Drama Club to grace the CCCHS stage one last time.
Adapted from the 1986 film of the same name, the story follows meek florist Seymour Krelborn (played by CCCHS graduate Ethan Medley) as he cultivates a strange and unusual plant and the wild fame and success that the plant provides.
When the plant attracts unprecedented business to the flower shop, the shop owner Mr. Mushnik (played by graduate Scarlett Canada) is thrilled, but shop assistant Audrey (played by senior Elizabeth Watson) is concerned for Seymour's wellbeing. The plant will only eat blood, and Seymour must find more and more to meet the needs of the increasingly hungry flytrap.
With a cast that includes graduates Geoffrey Canada as The Dentist and Dillon Vance as the voice of the plant, as well as Emily Cluck, Hallie Disch, Angel Fowler, Madelyn Harter, Emma Stafford and Madeline Young along with current students Madison Cornstubble and Shia Fowler, audiences should expect to have a great time watching some serious young talent!
The show is appropriate for most audiences, but parental guidance is recommended for young children who may be frightened by spurting stage blood.
