Little Shop of Horrors

Venue Lennox Theatre
Dates 01 August - 09 August 2014

Book and Lyrics by Howard Ashman
Music by Alan Menken

For over 30 years, Little Shop of Horrors has made audiences scream with laughter. In this gleefully gruesome musical Seymour, a poor florist’s assistant, allows his craving for fame and fortune to seduce him into playing nursemaid to a man-eating plant. Goings on surrounding the growing plant’s demand for more, more, MORE are accompanied by witty parodies of sixties music. Between bites, the carnivorous Audrey II, named after Seymour’s secret love, brings down the house singing rhythm and blues à la Otis Reading or James Brown!

Written by the creative geniuses who also wrote Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and Aladdin, this fun show is sure to have your toes tapping, hands clapping and laughs a plenty with its charming tongue in cheek comedy.
