Auckland Theatre Company
From the creators of hit Broadway musicals Beauty And The Beast and The Little Mermaid, comes Little Shop Of Horrors, a mad cap, delightfully scary and quirky joy of a musical, that's a treat for the whole family.
Geeky florist assistant Seymour finds his chance for love and success via a strange and extraordinary exotic plant. Can he cater to the demands of this rapacious man-eating plant and still win the affections of sweet bubble-headed Audrey? One of the longest running and most successful off-Broadway shows of all time, featuring songs such as Somewhere That's Green, Downtown, Feed Me and Suddenly Seymour.
"With its wonderfully geeky hero, a demented dentist, a goofy girl and a singing plant, Little Shop Of Horrors was the first major success for multiple Academy Award-winning creative duo Howard Ashman and Alan Menken. It's a delightful, toe tapping experience which has spread its tentacles of pleasure and scariness far from its off-Broadway origins." - Colin
