Little Shop of Horrors – 2015

Now firmly established as a cult classic, this comedy horror rock musical tells the tale of Seymour, a downtrodden florist on the impoverished Skid Row. Overworked and undervalued by his boss Mr Muschnik, Seymour is in love with his beautiful co-worker Audrey, but is powerless to win her affections away from her sadistic and abusive boyfriend.

However Seymour’s fortunes take an abrupt turn for the better when he discovers an entirely new plant, which he names Audrey II – but fame, fortune and love come at a price as the plant has an “unusual” appetite and as Audrey II grows, Seymour must meet her increasing demands …

Based on the low-budget 1960 black comedy film The Little Shop of Horrors, and with music by Alan Menken and book by Howard Ashman, this rock ’n’roll horror musical is a perennial favourite and includes several well-known tunes, including the title song, “Skid Row (Downtown)”, “Somewhere That’s Green”, and “Suddenly, Seymour”.
