The Michigan Daily
0Feast on UAC's
Shop of Horrors'
By Alyssa Lustigman
Just when you think there's no
hope left on skid row, a miracle
comes along to save the day. In this
case, a somewhat cute, peculiar plant
named Audrey II is the hero-turned-
monster in the University Activities
Committee's musical rendition of
Little Shop of Horrors.
UAC's Sophshow is putting on
the performance, and all the cast
members are either first year students
or sophmores. "It's exciting, and it's
a challenge to put on," says director
* Jeff Lerner, an LSA sophmore. "It's
a bizarre and unusual experience to
try and bring a plant to life," he adds
with a secretive grin, not wishing to
reveal too much of the plot for those
rare few who have not seen any
version of the musical.
One secret of the musical is
Audrey II's ability to grow
throughout the show. This is done
through a series of papier mache
hand puppets controlled by
individuals working under the stage
props. Watch and be amazed.
The show is being produced by
LSA seniors Chris McRae and Janet
Hofmann. McRae says he chose the
show because of its popularity and
its catchy, fun music. "The show
stays fresh no matter how many

Copley Dance Company to most
people on campus and more than
likely the reaction you are likely to
get is, huh?
It would be fair to say that Cop-
ley's company is better known only
among Ann Arbor's hardcore dance
enthusiasts, despite the company's
increasing popularity. This weekend
the company will be making a
statement that should serve as a
clarion call: Ann Arbor does have
some quality dance companies out-
side of the University!
Part of this statement will be
made with Copley's full length con-
cert program entitled Portrait of an
Artist. Based on the life and work of
American painter Georgia O'Keefe,
this 70-minute program will study
her relationship with the city and re-
gion around Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Santa Fe was O'Keefe's home for.
many years and served as an artistic
sanctuary during periods of stifled

times, and places.
During the '20s and '30s Ameri-
can women received little artistic
recognition. It was at this time that
O'Keefe emerged as a pioneer in fine
art. The artist's work often reflects
the moods of her Southwestern
home as well as organic, abstract
forms that often employed strongly
sexual symbolism, particularly in
her paintings of flowers.
Santa Fe was an important influ-
ence on O'Keefe's art. In Portrait of
an Artist, Copley's company will
contrast a busy Hispanic city and the
markedly different peace of an oasis
in the nearby desert.
The production will be performed
in 12 movements. One of t h e
movements, "Kachina... the Desert
Ghosts," premiered in Kalamazoo
at the studios of the Wellspring
Dance Collaborative in September.
The piece was choreographed both as
an independent work and as a portion
of this weekend's larger production.
It served as a dance within a dance,
and its incarnation this weekend
should prove to be quite exciting..
University dance students take
note: Copley's company boasts two
recent graduates of the University's
Master of Fine Arts program. Mary
Fehrenbach and Betsy Glenn have
elected to continue their careers in
Ann Arbor and will be dancing in
this weekend's work.
