MONTGOMERY – Virtuoso, the Montgomery High School’s music and theatre ensemble, will be presenting their spring musical, “Little Shop of Horrors” starting on Friday, April 28 at 7 p.m., Saturday, April 29 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, April 30 at 2 p.m. in the high school auditorium.

With music by Alan Menken and book and lyrics by Howard Ashman, “Little Shop of Horrors” is a science fiction satire showcased as a musical comedy. Written to be a “B” rated movie and set in the alleys of Skid Row, the story features a man-eating plant cultivated to save Mushnik’s Floral Shop. A love story ensues between shop workers Seymour and Audrey, but their relationship is challenged by the ever hungry carnivorous plant.

Tickets are available on the Showtix4u website or can be purchased by calling 1-866-967-8167. You can also access the ticket site through the school website at www.montasd.org. Tickets will be sold at the door two hours prior to each show but reserved seating is encouraged.

Virtuoso has been in existence for 18 years, but is in its ninth season as a combined theatre and vocal ensemble. Virtuoso’s most recent performance was “The Miracle Worker” in December and “Beauty and the Beast” last spring. The ensemble is co-directed by Carina McNear and Jessica Carpenter, with orchestra direction by Brian Rehn and technical direction by James Carpenter. “Little Shop of Horrors” is licensed by Music Theatre International.
