Little Shop of Horrors opens August 12 at the Capitol Theatre, Port Hope.
Little Shop of Horrors
Book & Lyrics by Howard Ashman
Music by Alan Menken
A hilarious sci-fi smash about a man-eating plant.
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.
The meek floral assistant Seymour 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 as long as Seymour keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!
This Motown-infused musical is sure to make you laugh—and fear the words “feed me!”
