The Goliad High School drama department is asking the community to help with upcoming productions by donating furniture, clothing and other props that look like it came from the 1950s.
Theatre students at the high school are now rehearsing a production of Little Shop of Horrors — a musical set in the 1960s. This means that one of the items needed is a barbershop chair, even if it is just a loan.
This play tells the story of Seymore, a meek and dejected assistant at a floral shop who happens upon a strange plant, which he affectionately names “Audrey II” after his crush there.
Little does he know at the time that this plant will develop a soulful R&B voice and a thirst for human blood.
As the plant grows bigger, it promises limitless fame and fortune to Seymore as long as he continues the fresh supply of blood.
The musical is showing to the public Dec. 9 and 10 at the Goliad High School auditorium.
Kristin Billo, who is coordinating these donations for the theatre, said that donations are needed for this production between now and Thanksgiving.
This is the first of two expected donation drives for the troupe as they will continue their performances next semester with One Act Play.
Those wanting to donate furniture or other items can email Billo at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the high school and leave a message at 361-645-3257.
