CHS presents ‘Little Shop of Horrors’

       The musical, “Little Shop of Horrors,” will be performed by the Coronado High School Drama Depart-ment Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 18-20.
       The public is invited. Shows will start each night in the Coronado auditorium, 1590 W. Fillmore St., at 7 p.m. The cost is $8 ($6 for students or seniors), with a chance to save $2 if a canned-food donation is made to Harvest of Love.
       Another show will be performed Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 10 a.m. - a special matinee for middle schoolers.
       This will be the stage version of the musical. “It's a lot like the movie, but the ending is not 'Hollywood happy,'” explained school drama director Elizabeth Kahn- Lanning.
       The main characters will be Corbin George as Seymour; Kaeli King as Audrey; Chance Hulce as Mushnik; Erik Brevik as Orin Scrivello (the dentist); and Katie Darling, Maddie Spanton and Wryleigh Bergstrom as the Ronnettes.
       The entire cast consists of 12 students, plus 20 crew members.
       Live musical accompaniment will be provided by a pit orchestra of school band and orchestra members, Kahn said.
       Student photos juried in
       Zakkary Craine, an eighth-grade SAIL student at West Middle School, had two photographs juried into the annual Dia de los Muertos exhibit at the Cottonwood Center for the Arts in the downtown area.
       The exhibit opened Oct. 29 and will remain up through Oct. 18.
       Craine had shot the photos for a student art page in the West school newspaper, according to Deb Shipley, a SAIL language arts teacher.
       CHS PTA fundraiser
       The Coronado High PTA will benefit from sales at the Chapel Hills Barnes & Noble bookstore Friday, November 19.
       When a shopper mentions the school while checking out, a percentage of the purchase amount will go to the Coronado PTA, which is fundraising toward this year's after-prom party.
