Terific production. We enjoyed this so much and felt badly that there were so few folks in the audience. The music was wonderful although too loud when there were speaking parts - we missed much of the dialog due to the music,

Description

One of the longest-running off-Broadway shows of all time, “Little Shop of Horrors” is based on a black-comedy film version in the 1960s and a doo-wop rock and roll score by the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Merken. A down-and-out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination! A great musical score (“Suddenly Seymour,” “Skid Row (Downtown),” “Somewhere That’s Green) and excellent story telling make this a “must see” for theater fans

About the Ticket Supplier: La Habra Depot Theatre

The La Habra Community Theatre began in 1976 as a Children's Theatre project of the City's newly established Cultural Arts Council. The first production was Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. It was performed in La Habra High School's lecture hall since the city did not have a Community Performing Arts Facility.

At the same time, the 1909 Pacific Electric Depot building stood empty and in danger of demolition if it was not restored to a functional role in the community. Planning for its renovation as a Community Performing Arts Facility was initiated by the Mayor of La Habra and supported by the City Council as well as many community members. The "train station", or depot, was then moved across the street to its current location in Portola Park to integrate it into the master plan for the redevelopment of downtown La Habra.

Funding to restore the depot and convert it to a Theatre came largely from the Federal Government Restoration of Historical Landmarks. "The Depot" was declared Orange County Historical Landmark Site #14.

In January of 1980, the Children's Theatre project was expanded to incorporate adult theatre. Then, in July of 1982, the 100 members of the Community Theatre moved into the Depot Playhouse. The first performance in the restored building was the musical Oklahoma. On August 15, 1995 the Depot Playhouse became a non-profit tax-exempt organization and officially became know as Depot Theatre of La Habra. The theatre's board of directors and all production committees are comprised of community volunteers. The Depot Theatre is one of the few community organizations which functions without a single paid staff member.
