Little Shop of Horrors

  • Playhouse Theatre 106 Bathurst Street Hobart, TAS, 7000 Australia (map)

Before AladdinBeauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid, Howard Ashman and Alan Menken created the musical LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS that went on to become a cult classic all over the world, winning the Drama Critics Award, Drama Desk Award and Evening Standard Award all for Best Musical, and spawning the 1986 film starring Steve Martin and Rick Moranis.

Meek and mild flower shop assistant Seymour Krelborn has stumbled across a peculiar new plant species, which he names after his stunning but vulnerable colleague Audrey. The sinister plant seems like his ticket to fame and fortune, but the plant grows and grows…and GROWS! Seymour discovers that feeding his ambition starts to require juicier & juicier ingredients. Before he knows it, Seymour and Audrey must battle the perilous and persuasive plant not just for their lives, but for the very future of planet earth! The score combines 1960s rock and roll with soul and includes the smash-hit songs ‘Feed Me’, ‘Suddenly Seymour’ and ‘Somewhere That’s Green’.
