From Nov. 15 to Nov. 17, Moorestown Friends School will present its fall musical “Little Shop of Horrors” in the auditorium. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets cost $12 and can be purchased at mfs.booktix.com. This performance is recommended for audiences seventh grade and up.
In this classic musical, shy amateur botanist Seymour Krelborn tinkers his nights away in the basement of the failing Mushnik’s Flower Shop, hoping to create a fetching plant hybridization that will save the business from the plagues of Skid Row. His only glimmer of hope is working alongside floral designer Audrey, a lovely girl that looks for love but gets involved with a sadistic dentist, Orin Scrivello, DDS.
Seymour’s salvation falls to earth in the form of a man-eating plant from outer space — Audrey II — with the power to give poor Seymour everything he lacks in life. When Audrey II’s appetite becomes insatiable, Seymour is forced to choose between the high life or the high road. Featuring 1960s music and a fabulous Greek chorus, “Little Shop of Horrors” is a dark satirical commentary on Mid-20th Century American living.
