Selma Arts Center is quickly becoming the premier theatre in the Valley, and in their quest to build a fantastic 2020 season, they’ve created a dazzling lineup of hilarious, heartfelt, and magical shows that will bring you back again and again. From the Harry Potter-themed straight play Puffs to the culturally impactful musical Zoot Suit, Selma has chosen a beautiful variety of stories to tell next year. I sat down with Director Nicolette C. Andersen to talk about the new season and how Selma will evolve in the years to come.
Little Shop of Horrors
What do you get when you cross a man-eating alien plant with a hapless, lonely flower shop worker? Nothing good. Just ask Seymour Krelborn, he can tell you.
The first thing that struck me when I walked into the Ice House in Visalia to see Little Shop of Horrors this weekend was the amazing set! It was all done in gray tones like a black and white movie! So it already set the scene for me to enjoy the evening.
Think you know Little Shop of Horrors based on the movie or high school productions you may have seen? Think again! Symbolism and nuances abound in the Corey Ralston directed version at the Ice House.
