Little Shop of Horrors: Meet the Urchins!

This year’s musical, Little Shop of Horrors, has a small but fun cast. You’ve already learned about the leads, but we got a chance to chat with the cheeky Urchins who narrate the show. For this special interview, we had to go downtown to Skid Row, which was pretty hard- considering the cabs don’t stop. The Urchins are the sassy, witty, street smart narrators in the show, and the girls who were cast have all the sass and even more.
