2022 Spring Production: Little Shop of Horrors

First, I want to thank each of you for your interest and enthusiasm and for doing a great job in your audition for “Little Shop.”  As you may know, the original cast for the show included actors, including four females and four males and while I have somewhat expanded the cast, we had thirty seven of you who auditioned for the show, almost five times the original cast number!

Last spring one of the reasons we chose “Little Shop” for the 2022 spring musical was because it is a show with a smaller cast and also because of the possibility that the Corona Virus could still be present and problematic. As we have seen, the virus continues to plague our lives with no immediate end in sight and while I would have liked to cast you all, there is still the possibility that the show could be affected. Thus, in concert with the other “directors,” we have found the need to make cuts. When we cast a show, we always look beyond talent, also taking into consideration things like class year, conflicts and whether or not an actor is willing to accept a smaller role. It is with all of this in mind that we have formed the cast for “Little Shop of Horrors.”

For all who have been cast, the read-thru will be on Monday in the auditorium starting at 3:30. You will receive a rehearsal schedule through January at that time. Tuesday 12/7 and Thursday 12/9 there will be music rehearsals for all, and Friday 12/10 there will be a dance rehearsal for Seymour, Audrey, Mushnik and the three Urchins (the trio). Keep checking the website for any changes. BRING a 3 RING BINDER to the READ THROUGH!

If you have not been cast you might also want to consider talking to Mr. Karnisky about working on the crew for the show as a way to still be involved. I would also hope that if your schedule permits, you will return to McQuaid to see “Little Shop” in March. In any event, if you are an underclassman I look forward to seeing you back here next year to audition for our 2023 spring musical. Thank you all.
