Part of Mark’s new job, is also teaching the drama class. Although it’s not what he went to school for, he did work for a local theater production for many years, and knows what he is doing. Last week they put on Little Shop of Horrors.
A quick summary if you’ve never heard of this musical:
- An orphan boy was taken in by a flower shop owner. They live on Skid Row, where life is hard, and no one amounts to much. It’s basically the slums.
- Seymour, the orphan boy finds a strange looking plant, and brings it into the shop. He finds the only food that makes it grow is blood.
- The plant grows into a man eating giant human trap.
The kids did so good! I know they all worked hard, and I was very excited to see the production. This was Mark’s first theater performance with him as director as well. I couldn’t be more proud of him.
What I wasn’t expecting, however, was to get flowers. After the curtain fell, and bows were given, they called Mark and “his wife” on stage. They had this beautiful flower arrangement for me (no worries, I checked for man eating plants in it, and I think we’re safe).
