LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS Book & Lyrics by HOWARD ASHMAN Music by ALAN MENKEN Based on the film by Roger Corman Screenplay by Charles Griffith Tuesday 10 – Saturday 14 July, 7.30pm Tuesday 17 – Saturday 21 July, 7.30pm Saturday 21 July, 2.30pm Suitability: PG (some scenes contain strong language) Running Time approximately 2 hours including interval Directed by Martin Berry ------------------- When Skid Row florist Seymour buys a strange and interesting plant, little does he know that it can talk and that it feeds on blood. Seymour names the plant Audrey Two to impress his beautiful co-worker Audrey, but she is busy fending off the attentions of her sadistic dentist boyfriend. Meanwhile Audrey Two has plans that are far greater and more terrifying than Seymour can possibly imagine. Written by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, this enormously popular musical is a hilarious pastiche of musical theatre and 1960’s style, which has been seen by millions of people around the world. Brought to you by the team behind the 2011 sell-out production of Into The Woods (described by reviewers as ‘wonderful’, ‘amazing’, ‘outstanding’ and ‘brilliant’), this is a rare chance to catch this timeless show and see what all the fuss is about. ------------------- This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd, on behalf of Music Theatre International of New York. Originally produced by the WPA Theatre (Kyle Renick, Producing Director). Originally produced at the Orpheum Theatre, New York City, by the WPA Theatre, David Geffen, Cameron Makintosh and the Shubert Organisation.
