Evil Ruffage

There are a great many things that you shouldn’t trust to amateurs, and one of them is this: dancing and singing doo-woppy show tunes while tending to a 2,000-pound carnivorous plant from outer space. But the folks at the Arts Academy of Hollywood love their leafy danger — they live for it. Which is why bold boys, girls, men, and women of all ages (seriously — the youngest is three, and the eldest is old enough not to tell us her age) are coming together on Saturday to perform Little Shop... a redux of Little Shop of Horrors brought to us by Arts Academy’s Musical Theater Division (ages 5 – 10), Performing Arts Enrichment Group (for pre-schoolers), Tap Dance Troupe (ages 8 – 12), Hip-Hop Dance Troupe (13 – 17), and Adults Repertoire Company (18 – undisclosed). The brutal botany goes down in the Arts Park, in the middle of Young Circle in Hollywood. They say the show’s at 7ish — the exact time is TBA.
