Event Description

Southeast Missouri State University announces the River Campus Summer Arts Festival’s production of “Little Shop of Horrors,” opening June 14 as part of its two-week extended season. “Little Shop of Horrors,” one of the longest running Off-Broadway shows, is a deliciously dark sci-fi comedy musical with a stunning 1960s pop/rock score by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. Meet Seymour, a meek and dejected floral shop employee who finds an unusual plant, which he adoringly names “Audrey II.” Surprises await as this strange and unusual plant develops a soulful voice, a sailor mouth and a taste for human blood. Performances of “Little Shop of Horrors” are slated for 7:30 p.m. June 14, 19, 22, 23, 26 and 27; and 2 p.m. Sunday, June 17, in the Wendy Kurka Rust Flexible Theatre at the Southeast River Campus. The musical is a hilarious show that spoofs audiences’ favorite sci-fi and B-rated horror movies, said Director Michael McIntosh, assistant professor with Southeast’s Conservatory of Theatre and Dance. “It’s a very funny show that everyone will love,” McIntosh said “We have a great cast and huge special effects. It’s going to be a first-class production that audiences won’t want to miss.” Tickets are $20 and are on sale now. They may be purchased by contacting the River Campus Box Office, located in the Cultural Arts Center, 518 S. Fountain St., weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., by calling (573) 651-2265 or online at RiverCampus.org.
