    SPARTA-The Sparta High School Players are busy preparing for this year's musical production, "Little Shop of Horrors." Meek, mild-mannered, out-of-luck Seymour Krelbourn has just discovered an exotic little plant with a strange and unusual appetite. The plant is growing remarkably fast -- and so is Seymour's love for Audrey, his co-worker at the flower shop. But she has a boyfriend ... and the plant has a bloodthirsty secret that threatens the entire planet. The feeding frenzy begins as Seymour becomes a celebrity and the plant becomes a larger-than-life sensation. The play will feature performances by Katlyn Lucio as Audrey, Cris Casazza as Seymour, Mark Proulx, Tim Finnegan and Nick Dahlberg. The Do-op girls are: MaryAnn Lucas, Kateri Benjamin, Kayla Meny, Kate Gilson, Allison Rubinfeld, Erin Alderson, Denise Radeloff and Emily Carr. Student Technical Director is James Pepsis, Student Choreographer is Sarah Parker, Student Director is Erin Kowalsky and Student Musical Director is Michael Schill III. The performance will take place in the Sparta High School Auditorium. Show times are: 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 17; and 8 p.m. on Friday, March 18 and Saturday, March 19. General Admission is $7. The public is invited.
