Little Shop of Horrors 2018

About the Show

From Music Theatre International: “A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.”

Seymour is a humble shop assistant in a failing florist shop in a bad neighbourhood of downtown New York in the early 1960s. He would do “I don’t know what, but a helluva lot” to change his life, and to win the heart of his co-worker Audrey. Someone - or something - hears this rash offer, and a story that is a cross between the tragedy of Dr Faust (selling his soul to the Devil) and an affectionate satire on B-Grade Horror movies (in the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes/Plan 9 From Outer Space mode) begins.

Seymour discovers a strange unidentified species of plant that somehow fascinates him (he names it Audrey II). He is not the only one fascinated by the plant, and it begins to bring business, money and fame to the failing Little Shop. The only problem is that the plant can’t survive unless he can provide it with ever increasing quantities of the only “plant food” it craves - human blood. As the plant becomes bigger, more animated and more demanding, Seymour’s gradually escalating series of compromises lead to his inevitable downfall, at which point it is revealed that this extraterrestrial plant has much more serious intentions than just ruining one man’s life…

The story might be an intergalactic tragedy of sorts, but it is told with much gentleness and humour, and the 60s music is impossible to resist - it’s a feel-good nightmare!

This production was based on the 2003 Broadway revival and will be performed with an ensemble.
