PEMCo, FTT perform ‘Little Shop of Horrors’

first_imgIn conjunction with Notre Dame’s Pasquerilla East Musical Company (PEMCo), the department of film, television and theatre is staging a production of “Little Shop of Horrors” this week. The show will be performed Nov. 18 through Nov. 22 in the Patricia George Decio Theatre of the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center (DPAC).A dark comedy based on the 1960 film of the same name, the musical “The Little Shop of Horrors” has had several Broadway and off-Broadway runs. Courtesy of department of Film, Television and Theatre Juniors Maggie Moran (left) and Quint Mediate prepare for their upcoming performance of “The Little Shop of Horrors.”“I think the show is wildly campy, but it also has a lot of heart,” junior Quint Mediate said. “I think it’s a ‘be careful what you wish for’ story, and it explores the lengths that people will go through for the people that they love.”Mediate plays the lead role of Seymour Krelborn, whom he describes as a “geeky flower shop attendant” who develops a “crossbreed, man-eating plant called the Audrey II,” after his secret crush Audrey, who is portrayed by junior Maggie Moran.“Audrey is such a wonderful character to play, because she is sweet and lovable and purely herself,” Moran said. “Her story is a heartbreaking because she has lived a tough life and feels that she doesn’t deserve love and happiness. But throughout the show, she is pushed on a journey of discovery of self-worth.“What I enjoy most about Audrey is her selflessness and belief in goodness in the world despite her hardship,” she said. “We have a lot to learn from her and the way she fearlessly opens her heart to the world.”Mediate said production began with a particularly enjoyable audition process.“[It] was really fun,” Mediate said. “Maggie and I were called back for Audrey and Seymour, and during the callback number we unexpectedly decided to kiss at the end of the song. The director really liked it, and here we are.”That audition process, according to Mediate, was followed up by a rehearsal and production period that required a lot of effort and dedication from all involved.“The rehearsal process has been pretty grueling,” Mediate said. “The cast is pretty small — only about ten people — so the show relies heavily on a small number of people. It is actually one of the most tiring shows I have been a part of. But it is incredibly rewarding.”Both Mediate and Moran said “Little Shop of Horrors” will be a particularly memorable production and encouraged students to attend.“The show is unique because of the technical elements,” Mediate said, “A guest director by the name of R.J. Haddy was brought in to design all of the plants at the various stages of their growth. R.J. is an incredible special effects designer; he was actually a finalist on season two of [television channel] Syfy’s reality show ‘Face Off.’ These technical elements make the show worthwhile to come see on stage. I promise you won’t be disappointed.”Moran said the comedic elements of the show complement its deeper message.“This show is unique because it is full of absurdity and yet very real,” she said. “The characters and plot are laughably extreme and very entertaining, but at the same time, the themes underneath are so true and relevant to real life. I think that this is the greatest achievement of this show. I hope that our audiences see this and love it as much as we do.”Tickets for the show are $9 for students and can be purchased from performingarts.nd.eduTags: DPAC, FTT, Little Shop of Horrors, PEMColast_img read more

History made as SGU shareholders vote yes to amalgamation with SLGA

first_img7 Apr 2015 History made as SGU shareholders vote yes to amalgamation with SLGA A single unified national governing body for amateur golf in Scotland is to be created after the shareholders of Scottish Golf Union Limited (SGU), its 16 Area Golf Associations, today unanimously voted though the Proposal to amalgamate with the Scottish Ladies’ Golfing Association (SLGA). Following an historic 16-0 verdict delivered by the Area Golf Associations at an SGU Extraordinary General Meeting at the Stirling Court Hotel, the SGU and SLGA will amalgamate into a new company, to be called Scottish Golf Limited. The new company will come into existence on 1 October 2015. In February, the Membership of the SLGA backed the Proposal to amalgamate with the SGU by a unanimous margin of 204 – 0 at their Annual General Meeting, before SGU affiliated clubs and eligible societies overwhelmingly backed the Proposal after voting 97% in favour in an independent poll. Scotland’s leading male and female golfers, Stephen Gallacher and Catriona Matthew, also supported the plans to amalgamate the two governing bodies, with other partners and sponsors strongly in favour. Speaking at the Stirling Court Hotel at the University of Stirling campus, SGU Chairman Tom Craig (photo courtesy of SGU) expressed his delight at the outcome of the EGM. Craig said: “This is an historic day for Scottish amateur golf. I thank the SGU’s Area Golf Associations for their support in unanimously backing the Proposal and our affiliated clubs for showing confidence in the Proposal. I’d also like to thank Sheriff Alastair Thornton and all the other members of the Amalgamation Joint Working Group for their hard work. “We have enjoyed a close working relationship with the SLGA for many years and now look forward to working together as one organisation. The reality is that the SGU and SLGA are already working more closely than ever before so the transition to a single unified governing body should be fairly seamless. “We can look to the future with excitement and optimism at the potential benefits amalgamation will bring, including providing greater leadership to our clubs and players, projecting golf as a modern, inclusive sport with a positive image to attract more players and attracting more resources into the sport from commercial sponsorship and government. “It has been a long journey to reach this stage, but it was important that everyone had the chance to contribute to the amalgamation debate, so we could come forward with a good structure for the future of golf in Scotland. “Our game faces many challenges. There’s a lot to do, but we now have the opportunity to build a positive future for golf and golf clubs in Scotland.” Beth Paterson, SLGA Chairman, added: “We are delighted that both organisations have given their overwhelming support for amalgamation. This is a positive day for golf and a vital step forward for the game. Scottish Golf will now be able to focus on the main issues facing the game and take it positively into a new era.” For more information please contact: Ed Hodge, PR & Media Executive Office Line: 01334 466477 Mobile No: 07850 772166last_img read more
