Oh Horrors!

With the help of a giant man-eating plant, the Berry College Theatre Company sold out three shows with nearly 1,200 people attending the production of “Little Shop of Horrors.”

“Little Shop of Horrors,” a comedy horror rock musical based on the 1960 film by Roger Corman, takes place on Skid Row, where a nerdy florist Seymour, discovers a new man-eating plant. Seymour’s morals are tested when the talking plant continues to demand he kill people for his food. 

Deanna Cunningham, a freshman theatre major, was cast as one of the singers who helped narrate the play. 

“As a freshman it was a little nerve-racking being one of the three main singers,” said Cunningham, “But it was great to get to work with so many experienced BCTC performers, and learn so much.” 

This show featured many new faces such as freshman Connor Wright, who played the male lead of Seymour, as well as many veterans including senior theatre major Allie Southwood who played the lead female role of Audrey. 

“It’s truly amazing being a small cog on the huge machine which is theatre. I couldn’t be more proud of the company. I worked with hardworking and joyful people. I couldn’t ask for a better experience for my last show,” Southwood said. 

“Little Shop of Horrors” is the theatre company’s largest production to date and involved nearly 100 people.
