Little Shop of Horrors - February 15 - February 18, 2018

East Central College

 Director's Notes 

 

The 1986 film version of Little Shop of Horrors is one of the world's most popular films- a nerdy floral assistant, an abusive dentist, a fragile blond ingenue and a large green plant that eats people are ingrained in our cultural psyche.

 

The show you are going to see today is the result of a great deal of hard work by many people. Many thanks go to my creative collaborators Chris Page and Colin Healy, who have been working with me for several years . My scenic designer Chris Swanson and props designer Shane Dawson, costume designer Marci Franklin and our newest team member Kevin Shaw, who all provided beautiful designs for the production. My cast, crew and orchestra- who have all worked long hours preparing for the shop to open. 

 

We would all like to express how grateful we are to the ECC Administration- your financial and moral support of our program is unwavering and it is because of you that we can produce high level art that supports our academic mission. 

 

And of course- to you, our audience. We have been operating for over 45 years because you want to sit in the dark and go on a journey with us. We could do none of this without you. Thank you.

 

Feed the plants!!

 

Grace Austin.

Director, Little Shop of Horrors.
