 June 13, 2013 – July 14, 2013 – LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS

HorrorsFrom the award winning composing team who brought us Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST; THE LITTLE MERMAID; and ALADDIN comes this high-spirited, rollicking musical comedy about a boy, a girl, and a plant. The original Off-Broadway production of LITTLE SHOP won the coveted Drama Desk Award for Best Musical as well as the Drama Critics Circle and Outer Critics Circle Awards.  Its recent triumphant Broadway revival was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Revival! It is a fun-filled, delightful spoof of all those great old 50’s science fiction movies. Seymour, the nerdy clerk at a down-on-its-luck flower shop, loves the shop’s beautiful cashier Audrey and sets out to impress her by growing the world’s most unusual plant. Hilarity ensues when he discovers that the plant requires more than just water and sun to thrive. A tuneful musical score and a quirky, off-beat romance makes this show one of the last decade’s most successful and entertaining shows.
