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
A down-and-out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon "Audrey II"Â grows into an illtempered, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination.
One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies has become a household name, thanks largely to a score by the song writing team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, who redefined the animated musical film with Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin.
Please join the Players as they present the charming, tuneful and hilarious Little Shop of Horrors' last taking over the stage and theatre of the Dana Center in the spring of 1994.
