Fort Macleod well-represented in ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ cast


The Claresholm Society for the Arts will present its second musical production, “Little Shop of Horrors,” beginning this weekend at the Claresholm Community Centre.
The sci-fi musical in the style of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown features plenty of talent from Claresholm, Stavely and Fort Macleod.
Laura Glover of Fort Macleod is the director.
Fort Macleod cast members are Dona Guyette as Shirelle, Patrick Harris as Mushnik, Chris Adamiak as Derelict and Candice Larson as the voice of Audrey II.
Cast members from Claresholm are Spencer Van Dellen as Seymour, Cassidy Wynia as Chiffon, Stephanie King as Crystal, Elisabeth Reid as Ronette, Dan Linderman as both a customer and patient, Gaven Moore as dentist Orin Scrivello; and Christin Slevin of Stavely is Audrey.
Dyson Lytwyn of Claresholm is the puppeteer and Brian Dahl, also of Claresholm, is the voice and interviewer.
“Little Shop of Horrors” is the story of the struggling Mushnik’s Skid Row Floral Shop.
Meek floral assistant Seymour comes up with a plan to save the store with a strange yet interesting plant he happened upon during a total eclipse.
He affectionately names the plant “Audrey II” after his crush and co-worker at the shop.
What Seymour isn’t ready for is the plant’s unquenchable thirst for an unusual food source — human blood.
The growing plant attracts a great deal of business for the shop, which leads to all kinds of excitement on Skid Row.
Performances are Jan. 8, Jan. 9, Jan. 15 and Jan. 16.
Tickets can be purchased by calling 403-625-2880 during business hours.
“Little Shop of Horrors” was originally produced by WPA Theatre at the Orpheum Theatre in New York City.
The book and lyrics are by Howard Ashman and music is by Alan Menken. It is based on the film by Roger Corman and screenplay by Charles Griffith.
The Claresholm Society for the Arts was formed in 2013 to create awareness, increase participation, build relationships and facilitate opportunities for the talent that abounds in our community
