The Amityville High School Drama Club put on a weekend performance of the classic Broadway show “Little Shop of Horrors” on March 20-22 in the high school auditorium.

Starring Andrew Abate as Seymour, Aidan McGlone and Meghan Jacobsen as Audrey, and Ruben Fernandez as the cranky Mr. Mushnik, along with an ensemble cast of street urchins and townsfolk, the performance dazzled audiences with a sharp set and talented singers.

The offbeat hit show about a down-and-out young man living on skid row and his flesh-eating plant was originally a low-budget film produced in 1960, and again in 1986 starring Rick Moranis and Steve Martin.

The Amityville drama production was directed by Melissa Asbell, with help from assistant director Gerald Asbell. Other stars of the show included Patrick Abate, Alisha Alexandre, Quanisha Alexandre, Shiloh Bennett, Melissa Beresoff, Deborah Bichotte, Amanda Boegle, Jahleel Butler, Lawrence Haave, Kyle Hobson and Kiara Kearse, along with little stars Tiffany Asbell and Kira Lee.

A dedicated crew of student stagehands made the plant, Audrey II, and set design come to life.
