It's Suppertime with LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS

By Tyler Paul on October 27, 2010

Shing-a-ling, what a creepy thing to be happening! Shang-a-lang, feel the sturm and drang in the air.


Book by  Howard Ashman
Music by  Alan Menken
Lyrics by  Howard Ashman
Based on the film by Roger Corman, screenplay by Charles Griffith

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. Soon “Audrey II” grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination! One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies has become a house-hold name, thanks to a highly successful film version and a score by the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, who redefined the animated musical film with Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”, “Beauty And The Beast” and “Aladdin.” Charming, tuneful and hilarious, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS never fails to entertain. A small cast, band and unit set make the other aspects of production a snap.

LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS is a fun, quirky show, perfect for many colleges and community theaters, and features a LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORSflexible cast size.
