Seminar: Little Shop of Horrors 

Event Date
Tuesday, October 10th

Join Sophie Blum, the Coolidge’s new Director of Education, for an introduction to this carnivorous musical. 

Investigate horror-musical hybrids and the transgressive tune of mean green mothers from outer space.


Sophie Blum (they/she) joined the Coolidge in July 2023 as the organization’s first-ever Director of Education. After earning a BA in film from Vassar College and an M.A. in cinema studies from NYU, Sophie honed a passion for pedagogy at the Newton Teacher Residency and for six years at Lexington High School, where they taught English and film, including original curricula on genre, authorship, filmmaking for social justice, and the politics of representation. Sophie looks forward to bringing the classroom into the screening room by expanding the Coolidge’s educational programming to serve new and diverse audiences.
