August 8 – August 18
Get ready for this beloved and out-of-this-world comedy. Down on skid row we meet the meek and lovable Seymour Krelborn where he discovers a carnivorous plant that needs more than plant food to grow—it needs blood. And has plans for total world domination! This smash hit sci-fi musical will crash like a meteorite onto the stage and satisfy every appetite.
Fresh off his run in Ragtime as Houdini, Andrew Burton Kelley takes on his second role of the season as Seymour. Credits include: National Tour: A Christmas Carol. Regional: A Chorus Line, Rock of Ages, Beauty and the Beast (Palace Theatre), Xanadu, Violet, Titanic, The Producers (Seacoast Rep), Mitch Albom’s Hockey-The Musical (Detroit City Theatre).
Berkshire Theatre Award Winner Emily Kron returns to the Mac-Haydn stage as Audrey. She dazzled audiences last season as Sally Bowles in Cabaret and won a Berkshire Theatre Award for her performance as Mrs. Lovett in our 2017 production of Sweeney Todd. Mac-Haydn credits also include South Pacific (Nellie) and The Baker’s Wife (Genevieve).
Pat Moran stars as Orin (The Dentist) after his highly-praised performance as Joe Gillis in Sunset Boulevard earlier this season. Now in his third season at the theatre, Pat has been featured in previous Mac-Haydn productions such as Cabaret (Emcee), Chicago (Billy Flynn) and Into the Woods (Cinderella’s Prince).
Rounding out the cast are Alecsys Proctor-Turner as Audrey II, Berkshire Theatre Award winner George Dvorskyas Mushnik, Atsushi Eda as the Audrey II puppeteer and Maya Cuevas, Madi Cupp-Enyard and Angel Harrison as the Urchins: Ronnette, Chiffon and Crystal, respectively.
