Little Shop of Horrors

31 August 2021 @ 12:00 am

Written By:

Creative Team: Director: Shannyn McKay-Lee
Musical Director: Matthew Rumley
Choreographer: Maisy-Jo Russell

The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his coworker 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, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out of this world origins and intent towards global domination! Our production is open to anyone of age 14+ as cast or crew.
