Little Shop of Horrors Program by the-Mad-Hatress Little Shop of Horrors Program by the-Mad-Hatress
I hope this is the right category. >>;;

So, let me tell you: designing a program cover for a show is hard. There are SO many damn legalities!! The author's names have to be the same size, the same font, the same color, on the same plane, no less than %50 of the size of the title, and no other name but the production company and the title can come before their names.

Wow.

It was a little obnoxious.

...Because Alan Menken is gonna fly out to our school and sue us, right? I know.

But still.

So, originally for posters, I wanted a sort of '50s B-Movie look. Then I realized there wouldn't be a whole lot of room in this picture for information. So I switched my poster and program designs. Plus, I had already sketched this on a little half-sheet of paper so there wouldn't be the hassel of trying to blow it up.

The character designs are loosely based off of the actors from the '80s film (WHICH IS TOTALLY AWESOME AND ALL OF YOU SHOULD WATCH IT). In our version, the girl who played Audrey had long brown hair and her understudy was a flaming redhead... and I'm sorry but Audrey should have short, blonde hair, n'est-ce pas?

I must say, I loved doing this. Not only did I get to be in the show, but I got to handle publicity artwork, too. THANK GOD FOR THEATRE TEACHERS WHO ARE WILLING TO ACTUALLY UTILIZE THEIR STUDENTS TALENTS, WHAT?

That's all.

Brilliant! Yes, programs are not easy to design. Picture or logo? Or both? This is very clever. With 30 different program designs I have each year, I find it challenging to come up with these fantastic twists based on the show. Bravo!

I know that feeling! I was really glad that we got to perform Little Shop. Especially considering the less-than-cool musicals we did while I was in high school.

If you did, I'd prefer it if you tried to somehow make it your own... I know there's really nothing I can do to stop you from doing whatever you want. As long as it's not an outright copy and maybe in your own style somehow... sure.
