Little Shop of Horrors Replaces The Full Monty in OBSP’s 2017 season

Posted by on Jun 6, 2017 in Announcements, Events, Press Release | No Comments

We are excited to bring you a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT :
Little Shop of Horrors will be replacing The Full Monty for our 2017 season.

Little Shop of Horrors will be directed by our Director of Production, Domonic Barnes who is teaming up with musical director, Walter A. Webster, who is also our Artistic Director, for this show!

Little Shop of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. What happens when a hapless skid row floral assistant discovers an exotic breed of man-eating plant? From the award-winning songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, this delightfully demented, charming musical blends doo-wop, rock and Motown into an affectionate cult classic send-up of B-movie horror flicks. A true classic of camp comedy, this is the musical that’s sure to grow on you!

If you are interested in auditioning for this production please check out our Auditions page and The Little Shop of Horrors Page.
