Little Shop of Horrors


Frankel Jewish Academy Performing Arts Department is proud to present the spring play Little Shop of Horrors for two entertaining performances Thursday, March 30 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, April 2 at 2:00 pm in The Berman Center for the Performing Arts at the West Bloomfield Jewish Community Center. 

Book and Lyrics by Howard Ashman & Music by Alan Manken, who later created such classics as Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin.  Little Shop of Horrors was their very first production and the remains the third-longest running and the highest-grossing production musical in Off-Broadway history.

Seymour, the show’s insecure hero, fumbles his way through a zany terrain of sci-fi, horror and romance. A handful of desperate characters: a man-eating plant, a lovelorn heroine and her nitrous oxide loving boyfriend, a desperate Jewish flower shop owner, a chorus of street urchins and sleazy opportunists join Seymour in reaching for the dream to grow beyond their mere existence and escape Skid Row.
