SAS brings new perspective to a classic

On 31 January, 1 February and 2 February, Shanghai American School (SAS) students on the Pudong Campus brought a new twist to the dark musical comedy Little Shop of Horrors. The cast took a small shift from the earlier, iconic versions. From the South Bund Fabric Market to the hardware stalls of Beijing Lu, the little shop was constructed with local textiles in order to reflect the megalopolis the students live in.  Audrey II - typically portrayed in other productions by a puppet - took on a new, more visceral role in Shanghai, lending both body and voice on stage to the voracious vegetable.

Little Shop of Horrors tells the story of Seymour, a clumsy florist who discovers a fly-trap-esque plant, Audrey II, that brings him fame and fortune, but requires blood to survive. Eventually, the plant urges Seymour to kill for it, resulting in not only his own death but also the death of the woman he loves. From the one-of-a-kind set to the locally made costumes, the actors and the audience loved the original twist that SAS brought to this production.
