“Little Shop of Horrors” is an affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movie. A down-and-out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. The ill-tempered, R&B singing, carnivorous plant offers fame and fortune to anyone who will satisfy its growing appetite.
The play was based on the low-budget 1960 Black comedy film directed by Roger Corman. One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this cult-classic has become a household name— thanks to a highly successful film version in 1986 and a score by the song-writing team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken. The tuneful “Little Shop of Horrors” score features early 1960s rock n’ roll, doo-wop, and Motown music, that includes songs such as “Grow For Me,” “Somewhere That’s Green,” “Suddenly, Seymour,” “Skid Row (Downtown),” and many more.
“Little Shop of Horrors” is under the direction of Lee Buckholz with choreography by Heather Paige Folsom and musical direction by Scott Bradley. The cast will include Ricky Cona, Jillian Prefach, Kevin Crain, Matthew Bryan Feld, Tymika Prince, Tamika Skaggs and more.
