Video: Meet the CAST of RTC's LITTLE SHOP of HORRORS

Ed Notes readers are aware that I have been dividing my time between the usual political activity and the local community theater which plays so much bigger than a community theater. I saw opening night of Little Shop of Horrors on Friday night. Most people saw the movie and not the play - seeing this live beats the movie anytime. In fact RTC put on the play many years ago and this is our own version of a revival.

When Arthur Goldstein brought his family to the Saturday matinee I went over to say hello - but once Act I

The cast
began I couldn't leave. The singing is beyond outstanding, the set which involved as much work as any one I've worked on, gets applause - especially as the stage is turning. And the lighting and mists create a perfect climate for this sci-fi musical. Here is a promo from the amazing cast. (If anyone wants to come, there are performances this Thursday, Friday, Saturday night and a Sunday matinee. (Great for kids of a certain age.) (Email me if you want assistance - I can have them hold tickets for you - I think $18 or $20 a piece - less for seniors - for Broadway quality shows.)

One of the interesting sidelights of the RTC, which has many current and former teachers involved, is how it has been moving towards more diversity, as this cast illustrates.

Here is the promo video with the cast produced by which you should subscribe to for news of community and regional theater - why pay those Broadway prices for quality theater?
