Eastside High School's drama department will present their spring production "Little Shop of Horrors" at 7 p.m. March 1 and 3, and 2:30 p.m. March 4, in the school's auditorium. Tickets will cost $3 for teachers, $5 for students and $7 for adults.

"When I choose a play, I always look for something that has some type of humor in it," drama teacher Lindsay Beaumont said.

The musical is based on the 1960s film entitled "The Little Shop of Horrors." The play made its Broadway debut in 1982. The better known modern version of the movie starred Rick Moranis and Steve Martin and came out in 1986.

"Little Shop of Horrors" is about a young man who nurtures a plant only to discover this it's actually a plant that feeds on human blood. The young florist ends up having to go on a killing spree to feed it.

The main characters include Seymour, the florist played by junior Tommy Powell; Audrey, played by Mary Lathem; and the puppet Audrey II, who is the bloodthirsty flower in the show.

The set was built by the technical theatre team led by Beaumont as well.

"We hope that everyone can come out and enjoy the show," Beaumont said.

The play has a PG rating. For more information or to reserve tickets, call (770) 784-2920.
