Madison West Students to Perform ‘Little Shop of Horrors’
Attend West High School's production of Little Shop of Horrors. The play is February 29th, March 1st, and March 2nd at 7:30 PM at Memorial High School Theater.
Description: The meek ﬂoral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" -after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!
One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows, Little Shop Of Horrors, the charmingly tongue-in-cheek comedy has been produced worldwide to incredible success.
Easton Michaels: Guest Director/Choreographer - ‘Little Shop of Horrors’
Returning to West for the second year in a row has been such a joy! I’m hoping that our production of “Little Shop of Horrors” will inspire the next generation of theater artists to continue creating magic at West.
During my time at West I had the opportunity to be in multiple shows including, “The 39 Steps”, “Oklahoma!”, “The Drowsy Chaperone” and “Seussical”. I also had the opportunity to direct and choreograph “21 Chump Street” a 15 minute musical by Lin Manuel Miranda during my senior year. My time at West really inspired me to make a career for myself in the arts.
After graduating from West in 2018, I went on to earn my BFA in musical theater at Ball State University under the guidance of Bill Jenkins and Broadway greats Sutton Foster, Megan McGinnis and Michael Rafter.
Since graduating in 2022, I have been fortunate enough to work professionally as an actor in many regional theaters. Most notably playing Woof in “HAIR” at Weston Theatre Company and The Scarecrow in GEVA Theatre Center’s queer reimagining of “The Wizard of Oz”. I have also been lucky enough to workshop two new musicals in NYC, “Wonder Boy” and “Rough Trade The Musical” (featuring the music of Canadian rock and roll hall of famer, Carole Pope). Recently I also made a TV cameo on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens LIVE” with Rosé from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and Julia Roberts.
