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 are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.
The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his co-worker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it…blood. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!
Little Shop of Horrors was produced by Richard Allen. Martin Patrick directed and Michael Burbidge was Musical Director. Choreography was by Andrea Allen.
The technical team was headed up by Bruce Reed (Technical Director) and our Stage Manager was Malcolm Le Croissette. Production and Set Design was by Jill ‘Wigs’ Wilson, who also designed and made the fabulous ‘Audrey II’ puppets.
