Just in time for Halloween, “Little Shop of Horrors” will be playing at the Susquehanna Stage Company October 21-30. This off-Broadway cult favorite rock musical is based on a 1960 lowbudget Roger Corman movie, and then opened in NYC in 1980. Little Shop of Horrors is a delectable sci-fi horror musical with an electrifying 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 charming, kooky, hilarious musical is directed by Nick Smith and Tim Monaghan and features a cast of eight community theatre veterans. Musical Direction by Sharon Boyer. Tickets are available at the box office, online at www.susquehannastageco.com or by calling 426-1277
