Heights Youth Theatre presents 'Little Shop of Horrors'
Heights Youth Theatre (HYT) continues its "Celebration of Tolerance, Transformation, and Acceptance" with its production of "Little Shop of Horrors," at Heights Middle School (the former Wiley Middle School) auditorium in University Heights.
The show, directed by Cleveland Heights resident Eugene Sumlin, with music direction by Stacy Bolton, includes 60 actors in grades 1–12 from Cleveland Heights, University Heights, Shaker Heights and surrounding communities. Join them as they make their way through downtown Skid Row with Seymour, Audrey, and one very strange plant!
“HYT'S production of 'Little Shop of Horrors' is sure to be a highlight of the season," Bolton said. "With this strong a cast, it's hard to believe these are school-aged students on stage.”
HYT has a long, rich history in the Heights and has been offering kids year-round opportunities to hone their theatrical skills and entertain audiences for more than 60 years.
Performances will be presented at the school (2181 Miramar Blvd.) Friday, Jan. 18 and 25, at 7 p.m.; Saturday, Jan. 19 and 26, at 2 p.m.; and Sunday, Jan. 20 and 27, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 general admission, and $9 for seniors and children under 6. Tickets can be purchased online, or at the box office, which opens 45 minutes prior to each show. For more information, visit www.heightsyouththeatre.org. For group seating information, call 216-410-7500.
Note: Even though "Little Shop of Horrors" is a comedic show, it does contain some adult themes.
Pamela Fine is the executive director of Heights Youth Theatre.
