The sci-fi musical-comedy spoof Little Shop of Horrors by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman will return to Parkway Playhouse this summer running from July 2 to July 16.
But did you know that Parkway Playhouse Jr is running a Little Shop of Horrors Creature Creation Workshop? It starts this month and runs through early April.
Have you ever wondered what it would take to conquer the world? Well, that is exactly what the plant-from-outer-space at the center of Parkway Playhouse’s upcoming production of Little Shop of Horrors wants to do. Named Audrey II, this plant grows from potted plant to a carnivorous beast that dominates the stage and consumes one character after another! Students in this exciting class will be responsible for the design, building, and operation of these larger than life puppets that will be used in the production.
Led by Penland based teaching artists Kerstin Davis and Stacey Lane, this is a unique opportunity to create an incredible character!
Kerstin and Stacey have asked for some help gathering donations they need for these creations. If you have or know someone who has any of the following that they would be willing to donate (tax deductible since both groups are 501(c)(3) organizations), please bring them by the theatre office (or call 828-682-4285 and we’ll help figure out how to get them from you to them).
