Little Shop of Horrors is a delectable sci-fi horror musical with an electrifying 1960s pop/rock score by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman.

 

Seymour Krelborn is a meek and dejected assistant at a floral shop who happens upon a strange plant, which he affectionately names “Audrey II” after his crush at the shop. Little does he know that this strange and unusual plant will develop a soulful R&B voice, a potty mouth, and an unquenchable thirst for HUMAN BLOOD.

 

As Audrey II grows bigger and meaner, the carnivorous plant promises limitless fame and fortune to Seymour, as long as he continues providing a fresh supply of blood. Just when it’s too late, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s extra-terrestrial origins and his true drive for world-domination.

This production was in association with BASINGSTOKE AMATEUR THEATRICAL SOCIETY

PRESS REVIEWS

“To top it all, it has been directed by Nick Brannam, who is, unbelievably, just 22 years-old. He has, in addition to choreographing the show and designing the scenery, cast and guided the perfect company, leading his team from the front to bring all of Little Shop’s B movie silly fun to brilliant life.”
