MUSIC THEATRE KANSAS CITY PRESENTS
LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS – MARCH 20-22
A delightful family musical that appeals to all ages!
Music Theatre Kansas City (MTKC) is well known around town for offering steady, top-quality musicals performed by the city’s best youth talent. On March 20-22, MTKC will present Little Shop of Horrors as its spring break mainstage production.
This show features an elite cast of 35 young performers and a live on-stage band. The production is directed by MTKC’s Executive Director, Cary Danielson-Pandzik, choreographed by David Grindrod and music directed by MTKC’s Artistic Director, Julie Danielson. “This has always been one of my all-time favorite musicals and it’s one of those shows that feels new each time I see it,” says Danielson. “The crazy thing is, it’s really a morality tale hidden inside the bizarre world of man-eating plants. But when we really commit to being part of the story, we soon come face-to-face with the consequences of always wanting a little bit more and a little bit more. Who doesn’t love a life lesson told through a 60s doo-wop song??”
About Little Shop of Horrors
A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood Sci-Fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind the crazy tale of Seymour, Audrey, and their one-of-a-kind, ever-growing, blood-thirsty Venus Flytrap!
Only four performances will be held on:
Friday, March 20th at 7pm,
Saturday, March 21st at 2pm & 7pm,
Sunday, March 22nd at 2pm.
The show will be presented in the B&B Live Theatre inside the B&B Shawnee Movie Theatre Complex at 16301 Midland Drive (I-435 and Midland Drive) in Shawnee, Kansas. Tickets are available at MTKC.org and/or through BBTheatres.com or at the B&B Theatre box office in Shawnee.
About Music Theatre Kansas City
Cary Danielson’s passion for Youth Theater started in Wichita, Kansas in 1984 when she started her first theater company, Music Theatre for Young People. That program still remains an active and vibrant component of the Wichita arts scene today. Then in 1991, Cary moved to Overland Park and started a similar theater company. In 2014, the organization changed its name to Music Theatre Kansas City and remains dedicated to bringing quality musical theater and preparatory training to the Kansas City community.
