LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS

Book and Lyrics by Howard Ashman
Music by Alan Menken
Based on the Film by Roger Corman 
Screenplay by Charles Griffith
Director and Choreographer Donna Feore 

IT’S FUNNY HOW LOVE CAN GROW

Skid Row florist’s clerk Seymour Krelborn is too shy to declare his love for his co-worker Audrey – until a mysterious exotic plant brings him unexpected fame and fortune. There’s just one problem: the plant has ambitions of its own, and it thrives on only one food – human blood.

Awesome special effects, a tender love story and a fabulous sixties-style score all combine to make this sci-fi spoof a “monster” hit.
