Based on the 1960 movie by Roger Corman and Charles Griffith, “Little Shop of Horrors” tells the story of Seymour Krelborn. While working at Mushnik’s Skid Row Florist, Seymour nurtures a never-before- seen flytrap plant (that he names “Audrey II” after his beautiful and kind co-worker of the same name) to enormously good health! Unfortunately, Audrey II doesn’t eat flies — she wants meat! — and while her uniqueness makes Seymour famous and makes all his dreams come true, will the price she wants him to pay be worth it?
**Although the show is a dark comedy, this show is RATED PG due to some instances of strong language/profanity and one scene of domestic violence, and we encourage parents to consider this when deciding whether to bring their younger children to the show. Due to copyright law, we are not allowed to modify or soften any of the words contained in the script.**
