"Little Shop of Horrors" — Sept. 29 to Oct. 16, 2016

"Little Shop of Horrors"
A musical comedy
Book and lyrics by Howard Ashman
Music by Alan Menken
Based on the film by Roger Corman, screenplay by Charles Griffith

Directed by Bob Russell
Musical Direction by John Ebner

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!

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash 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.

Little Shop of Horrors premiered on May 6, 1982 at the Workshop of the Players' Art Theatre. It then opened off-Broadway at the Orpheum Theatre in New York City's East Village on July 27 of the same year. The production was directed by book writer and lyricist Howard Ashman and starred Canton, Ohio native Lee Wilkof as Seymour, Ellen Greene as Audrey and Ron Taylor as Mr. Mushnik. It closed on Nov. 1, 1987 with 2,209 performances under its belt. When propositioned for a Broadway transfer, Ashman elected not to, claiming the show was perfect for where it was. The musical also had its West End premiere at the Comedy Theatre, produced by Cameron Mackintosh. It ran for 813 performances from Jan. 1, 1983 to Oct. 5, 1985 and starred Barry James and Ellen Greene (reprising her role from New York).

AUDIENCE ADVISORY: This show is not suitable for young children and is best enjoyed by audiences ages 13 and older. The stage version of Little Shop of Horrors has a somewhat darker and "salty" tone compared to the film version; the show contains violence, blood, sadism and adult-oriented humor.

Little Shop of Horrors is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. The videotaping or other video or audio recording of this production is strictly prohibited.
