Previous Productions
In the Heights
Singin' in the Rain
Spring Awakening
A Chorus Line
2014 Presented by Starcatcher and Encore!
Little Shop of Horrors
Presented by Starcatcher and JEST

The members of the Starcatcher creative team have a wealth of production experience, and have worked on a number of previous shows, including:

Encore!'s youth production of Hairspray - Jerusalem (March 2013)
Encore!'s youth production of West Side Story (March 2012)
Encore! and Mercaz HaMagshimim's production of Grease (March 2011)
The Agnon House production of "The Fable of the Goat" (March 2011)
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (J-Town Playhouse)


One of the biggest off-broadway hits of all time, Little Shop of Horrors is a rock musical that features the fantastic music of Alan Menken and Howard Ashman (who also gave us The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast); the quirky and slightly desperate characters of Skid Row; and of course - a giant man eating plant. This macabre horror story is a cautionary tale of what our hunger for fame and fortune can lead to. In an age where we buy the newest iProduct off the shelves, our Facebook profiles yell out for the aproval of those around us, and reality tv shows promise instant pop-stardom to whover wishes to expose their life on camera, this show couldn't be more timely.

The production features unforgettable songs like "Feed Me", "Somewhere That's Green" and the pop duet that has yet to be surpassed onstage - "Suddenly Seymour," in addition to new surprises that will make this Jerusalem production unique.
