BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – Thespians at Merritt Island High School kicked off their Thanksgiving break with their fall production of Little Shop of Horrors and students not only sang and danced, but also learned a brand new skill for this show – puppetry.
If you’re familiar with the 1986 cult classic film, you know all about Audrey II, the story’s antagonist and very hungry plant. A team of students worked together behind the scenes to make Audrey II come to life onstage and grow throughout the show.
Andrea Brown is the theatre teacher at Merritt Island High School and the show’s director.
“This show was so much fun to put together,” said Brown. “For many of the students this was the first musical we were able to produce in two long years, so being back on stage was beyond memorable, and I couldn’t be more proud of all the students and volunteers involved. On to the next show!”
