The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) proudly presents the award-winning Little Shop of Horrors
as the first installment in this year's Studio Series. UC's Cohen Family Studio Theater will be transformed into an iconic drive-in movie theater for this much-loved musical, which runs Oct. 11-13, 2012.
Based on the low-budget film directed by Roger Corman, Little Shop of Horrors
is a comedy-horror-rock musical about a hapless florist who raises a plant that feeds on human blood. With a score in the style of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and Motown, the show satirizes science-fiction, ‘B’ movies, the legend of Faust and more.
