JCJC presents The Little Shop of Horrors Feb. 18-20

Ellisville, MS (WDAM) - The Jones County Junior College opens up a "Little Shop of Horrors" in the JCJC Fine Arts Auditorium.

The Little Shop of Horrors will have three performances on Feb. 18-19 at 7 p.m. and Feb. 20 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 and JCJC students can see the play free with their JCJC I.D.

The cast includes sophomore, John Wright of Yazoo City playing the lead role of Seymour and sophomore Wynn Brewer of Leakesville has will play ditzy character Audrey.  

"She is nothing like me," said Brewer.   "She has low self confidence, is very vulnerable and not modest.  I have really had to study this character!"

Playing Seymour was also a challenge for Wright who is a musical veteran. "Seymour is a shy, meek little guy which is very unlike me," said Wright. "This has been my favorite musical I have ever done. It has been the most challenging and most exciting. I cannot wait to share our hard work with everyone!"

Two people will be playing the role of Audrey the plant.  Miles Alexander of Long Beach is the puppeteer and Dr. Mike Lopinto who works at the University of Southern Mississippi's School of Music, is the voice of the plant.  He is also "The Voice of the Pride" at USM. 

For more information call the JCJC Fine Arts Department at 601-477-4094.
