Preparation for the Thespian Society’s fall production of “Little Shop of Horrors” is underway as the cast works to put together a unique take on a terrifying musical tale.

“I am so excited,” said Thespian president Riley Dion, who is playing the lead character, Seymour Krelborn. “Seymour is my dream role, and I am just over the moon to get to perform it for the school.”

Director Jennifer Russo sees great potential in the show’s cast based on the rehearsals held so far this year. The student actors are already finding their rhythm and hitting the right notes.

“We’ve had our first few practices, and the show is already looking so good,” Russo said.

The musical is scheduled for the auditorium on Dec. 7-8.
