The theatre department’s spring production of Little Shop of Horrors premiered on Feb. 18 in Meyer Hall and closed on Feb. 27.

The department began preparing for the show in November 2021. The cast and crew worked scene by scene to learn choreography, music, and technical cues.

“When we got to a point where we were able to do runs of even the first few scenes, it made a huge difference,” theatre junior and stage manager Devyn Humble said. “All of our hard work is put together.”

After opening weekend, the cast and crew had a week off before their second weekend of shows.

“I’m honestly looking forward to being back with everyone because we’ve spent every single week together since November,” Humble said prior to the show on Feb. 25. “Getting back with everyone is exciting because it’s a little family. I’m also excited to call it again because I’ve only stage-managed a Black Box show before, which was only one weekend.” 

Sunday, Feb. 27 at 2 p.m. was the last showing of Little Shop of Horrors.

“(Little Shop of Horrors) brings you on a little emotional journey, and you also get to watch the characters develop as they take you along on this journey,” Humble said. “My mom is like the show seems stressful, it would be your least favorite part. But no, those are the best part because it’s the reward. It’s what you’ve been working for all along.”
