So, we’ve come to the end of the first month of another new year. Resolutions have been broken, discarded, forgotten–that is, assuming they were ever made. University campuses are grim and bleak–those resolved to go to class have either failed, or have no idea why they’re still limping through the cold while 80% of their classmates are indoors, hiding from the newest threat (whether that be the “Polar Vortex,” or Justin Bieber throwing eggs and street racing). Well, if this sounds like you, I’ve got the answer to your woes: a musical production at King’s University College (London)!
The King’s Players are putting on Little Shop of Horrors for the 4th Annual King’s Musical.
“Little Shop of Horrors is a comedy/horror rock musical that tells the story of Seymour Krelborn, a young worker in a florist’s shop who raises a mysterious plant. When the plant starts gaining attention and fame things seem to be looking up for Seymour, until he learns that the plant’s food of choice is human flesh.” (View the event website.)
If that doesn’t scream mid-winter salvation, I’m not sure what does. Our very own Ben McCabe helped with prop and set creation, and will be appearing in the play, which is set to open tonight at 8pm and runs until this Saturday. The show dates and times are all listed below.
So, if you’ve been looking for that high culture fix to rouse you from hibernation, there may never be a better reason.
The following comes from the King’s Players website:
