Ever had the urge to get up close and personal with a really big carnivorous plant? This is your chance! Theatre Quadra invites you to audition for the hit musical "Little Shop of Horrors". Tryouts will be held at the Community Centre on Sunday, January 22 beginning at 1 p.m., and on Monday, the 23rd at the Bayview Room, Heriot Bay Inn starting at 7 p.m. Rehearsals will start in early February, with performances scheduled at the QCC for April 27, 28 and 29.

Little Shop of Horrors tells the story of a desperate attempt by Seymour and Audrey to save a failing florist shop by displaying a new and very unusual plant, one that, unfortunately, feeds on human flesh and blood. To the strains of great sixties-era music, romance blooms between Seymour and Audrey while the plant gets larger and larger (and the cast gets smaller and smaller...). There are terrific parts for men and women, and a large singing and dancing chorus.

Lots of details about the play are available on line, including at
