Camden Community Theatre, an affiliate member of the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County (FAC), will hold auditions for the hit musical Little Shop of Horrors Wednesday and Thursday at 6 p.m. in the Wood Auditorium. Auditions are for ages 16 and up.
If you love to sing and would like to be a part of this fun, rollicking musical, make plans to attend. Interested persons may download music information from the FAC website at www.fineartscenter.org. There will also be readings from the script. A breakdown of available roles is listed on the FAC website. Please note that the ensemble includes speaking roles. Plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the audition to fill out the information form and conflict schedule. Rehearsals will begin after Thanksgiving and there will be breaks for both Christmas and New Year’s holidays. The production is scheduled for Jan. 28 through 31 at the FAC. The show will be directed by FAC Theatre & Education Director Jami Steele and produced by Bryant Herring.
Little Shop of Horrors has been a favorite of theater-goers for more than 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty and The Beast and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world, Steele said.
Meek floral assistant, Seymour Krelborn comes across a new and interesting breed of plant he names "Audrey II" -- after his co-worker friend and "love of his life" Audrey. This foul-mouthed, singing carnivorous plant promises fame and fortune to the troubled Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it blood. Finally, Seymour discovers the plant’s "out of this world" origins and its intent towards global domination.
