LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS
A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash hit 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.
A 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 – with blood! Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II‘s out–of–this–world origins and intent towards global domination.
Little Shop of Horrors is one of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows and this charmingly tongue–in–cheek musical comedy has been produced worldwide to incredible success. This is the latest Kenton Theatre appearance from Reading Operatic Society after their brilliantly reviewed productions of Annie and Godspell. So, get your tickets now and join the cast as they take you on a visually creative ride of fun and mayhem, in a new interpretation of this well–known favourite.
