Sure, Strother (rhymes with author) plays a half-dozen different people in Little Shop of Horrors but his face was made for the role(s)!
And that’s all before intermission! If you want to see the other 4 or 5 characters he plays, you’ll have to come see the show yourself!
But we can tell you’re thinking to yourself… Hey, haven’t seen that face at Parkway Playhouse before? Well, yes, you have.
A search of the archives reveals him in The Music Man and Fiddler on the Roof.
…and again as the lovable Friar Tuck in Robin Hood.
Last, but not least in this stroll down memory lane: Nicely-Nicely Johnson!
Isn’t this picture from Guys & Dolls great? Check out the choreographer for Little Shop of Horrors (Myra McCoury) clutching the cymbals and one of the “street urchins” and do-wop girls (Kristen Livengood) as The Major. And let us not forget Bruce–master of the the shop who has stepped into many stage roles himself!
We’re certainly glad the gang’s all back together for another fun show.
Little Shop of Horrors runs July 2-16. Tickets can be purchased online or by calling (828)682-4285.
