After months of preparation, “Little Shop of Horrors” is ready to take the stage on Dec. 8.

Grandview High School’s theatre department has been working hard with nonstop practice and late-night rehearsals to get ready for the show.

“Little Shop of Horrors” is about a broke flower shop worker who accidentally raises a flesh and blood eating plant.

JP Haley, who plays the role of Orin Scrivello, says that opening night is exciting, with just a few initial nervous moments.

“I only get jitters when I say my first lines, then the rest is fun,” Haley said.

Haley said he worked hard to get into character. “I have been watching the movie and watching references and acting out the part as much as possible,” he said, adding, “the role I have is a challenge that I have been working hard on pulling off.”

Jasmyn Tilford, who plays Audrey, says that “opening night feels the same as every show night.” Meaning that the rush is all the same to put on an entertaining show for the audience.

“Little Shop of Horrors” is a dynamic show with a large cast.

The show starts at 7 p.m. all three nights, Dec. 8-10. Student tickets are $5 and adults are $7.
