THE ZIEGFELD THEATER PRESENTS LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS

 

The hilarious sci-fi smash hit musical takes over The Ziegfeld stage along with a special fundraising gala.

October 14 - November 5, 2016

 

OGDEN, UT-September 28, 2016- Continuing its season “The Best of Times is Now,” The Ziegfeld Theater presents the musical sci-fi smash Little Shop of Horrors, music and lyrics by the award-winning Disney dream team, Howard Ashman and Alan Menken. A special opening weekend fundraiser and gala will include free food, silent auction and raffle with the price of a regular ticket.

Meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a fantastic, new breed of plant that ends up transforming his run-down, skid row flower shop into a local sensation. The pressure mounts as the irreverent plant manifests its need to feed, promising unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he can deliver. Eventually, Seymour discovers the plant’s outrageous origins and its ultimate intention to achieve global domination.

This production will include a special event fundraising gala on October 15 to help fund a new sound system for the theater. Included in the price of a regular ticket, theater-goers will enjoy catered food, silent auction and raffle, along with the regular performance. Items up for auction include local getaways, popular restaurant gift certificates, one-of-a-kind experiences and more. Fundraising gala scheduled for Saturday, October 15, at 6:00 p.m.

Little Shop of Horrors is directed by Caleb Parry, music directed by Rick Rea, and choreographed by Heidi Potter Hunt.
