Little Shop of Horrors Creative Team 2019

We are heading to skid row with a dynamic team led by Erin Spears Ledford whose direction Mac-Haydn audiences will remember from the fantastically fun Wedding Singer last season. “Little Shop of Horrors has long been a favorite of mine as it pairs my love of both musical comedy and the horror genre. I couldn’t think of a better venue to put up this show than the Mac- Haydn stage!”

She is joined by David Maglione, who Music Directs his fifth and final main stage show of the season. No doubt David will have to work closely with Sound Designer Corbin White on this one who is excited to build the sound world of the plant: “Crafting the sound for the monster plant in Little Shop will be a rewarding challenge as it has to be very refined, but it’s sure to be a lot of fun!”

Lauren Monteleone Choreographs for us for the first time this season as does Emma Cummings in her capacity as Set Designer.

Kevin Gleason lights the show and Alison Zador designs costumes for her final production of the season.

Props Designer Joshua Gallagher and Hair & Makeup Designer Matthew Oliver round out the team.
