East Hamilton had a very successful spring production of Little Shop of Horrors raising over $5,000 for the theatre and an average ticket sale of 170 per night for all four nights. There were a lot of reasons to love and see this show, but if you missed them, here’s a bit of a recap.
Samantha Campo, one of the stage managers, says, “My favorite part was watching everything come together and how each performance they [the cast] grew into their character.” Sam also said that the audience loved it. Mr. ford also gave some of his opinions about the show. When asked what his favorite part was he responded with, “well that’s not a fair question.” After thinking for a minute though, he did say, “I love Audrey’s death scene,” which was amazing (side note: Audrey happened to be present to hear this and was amused). Mr. Ford was then asked about what the theatre company has to look forward to next year, but he would not as he says, “divulge” his plans… which was expected but we had to try.
We also interviewed East Hamilton’s one and only Audrey Ms.Rachel Woodard. This was Rachel’ first ever show, and she was the best Audrey anyone could ask for. Rachel loved the experience and just being there everyday, meeting a tone of new people and spending all of her time with them. Woodard could not choose her favorite performance but she narrowed it down to either the Tuesday or Thursday night show because less accidents occurred during those shows. Finally, she was asked if she would consider doing more theatre in the future and without hesitation said, “Absolutely!”
Little Shop of Horrors was the schools last show of the year and and it was a smash! The seniors that were involved in this show who won’t be participating in EHTC shows in the future definitely went out with bang! Now we can look forward to whatever next years season will be.
