Ronettes and Seymour Musical Rehearsal
Leah Scoppa

The Morgan Musical is Little Shop of Horrors.

The Morgan Musical will occur on Thursday, March 31st at 7:00pm, Friday, April 1st at 7:00pm, Saturday, April 2nd at 7:00pm, and Sunday, April 3rd at 2:00pm.

Little Shop of Horrors is a musical about a human-eating plant that, in the end, eats everyone and gets large enough where it feels like it will eat the audience. Seymour discovers this plant that feeds on human flesh and blood. As it devours more and more people and blood, it grows bigger, Seymour keeps feeding this plant to keep all the fame and fortune this unusual plant has brought him. He keeps on going until he can not anymore.

This musical also follows the love storyline between Seymour and Audrey. Seymour, a meek botanist, falls for his co-worker, a ditsy blonde woman named Audrey.

Many students will be performing in this musical. It is a double-cast, so one cast will perform Thursday and Saturday,
