Little Shop of Horrors Comes to WSHS

Winter Springs High School drama students epitomize the phrase, "The show must go on." Not even Hurricane Irma could prevent these dedicated thespians from making sure their fall show, "Little Shop of Horrors," opens on schedule this week.

The popular, sci-fi musical will be performed at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, September 28; 7 p.m. Friday, September 29; and 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Saturday, September 30 in the school auditorium, at 130 Tuskawilla Road in Winter Springs.

Despite cancellation of classes and rehearsals in the days before, during, and after Irma, the WSHS Theatre Company persevered. "Every barrier placed in front of them, they have worked through," says principal Pete Gaffney. "I am very proud of them for pulling this together." Theater director Jennifer Devine says, "My students are the absolute best. When school got cancelled, they all panicked because these kids want to work and rehearse."

Two local churches -- St. Stephen Catholic Community and Epiphany Lutheran Church -- came to the rescue, allowing the kids to rehearse in their buildings. Now, Jennifer says, "The students are working tirelessly to ensure that the set is built in time, which it will be."

Tickets for "Little Shop of Horrors" are $5 for students and $10 for adults. Reserved seating is $15. For tickets, email or buy them at the door.
