"Little Shop of Horrors" is the story of Seymour Krelborn (played by John Horsley in the Menlo School production), a nerdy employee at Mr. Muchnik's Skid Row Florist Shop; his coworker and love interest, Audrey (Tara Saha), and a mysterious plant that attracts business to the shop.
Mr. Mushnik is played by Sean Morgenthaler. Jordan Vasquez plays multiple roles, including Orin the dentist.
The musical is directed by Menlo School's new drama department director Steven Minning, who recently moved to Portola Valley. A former Broadway director and choreographer, Mr. Minning brings more than 30 years of professional experience to the school.
In New York., Mr. Minning was resident director for such productions as "Billy Elliot," "The Lion King," and "Showboat." He will direct Menlo School's three major productions for the school year.
Tickets to "Little Shop of Horrors" are $8 for adults and $5 for students, and are available at the Menlo Bookstore or by emailing email@example.com.
