“Little Shop of Horrors”: The Actor’s Charitable Theater presents the rock horror musical at its former theater The ACT, 3801 Alabama Ave., Tuscaloosa; the old Holt High School. Performances continue at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday, with a matinee at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Alan Menken and Howard Ashman wrote the 1982 musical based on Roger Corman’s 1960 ultra-low-budget black comedy “The Little Shop of Horrors.” Creating a score that’s a pastiche of early rock ‘n’ roll, they followed the story of ill-fated Seymour, a flower shop employee who inadvertently discovers and raises an alien invader, a plant that feeds on humans. The musical is partly narrated by girl trio Crystal, Chiffon and Ronette, and features songs made familiar by Broadway and off-Broadway, and the 1986 film adaptation directed by Frank Oz, including “Skid Row (Downtown) “”Feed Me”, “Somewhere That’s Green”, and “Suddenly, Seymour”. Tickets $24.75 general, $22.75 seniors, students and children. www.theactonline.com.
