Performing Students Present The Little Shop of Horrors

Performing Arts students perform The Little Shop of Horrors this weekend at The Mart Theatre, Skipton.

Fuelled by Faust and fertiliser, the Little Shop of Horrors is a ‘charming, kooky and hilarious 1950s musical sci-fi spoof’. With a book and lyrics by Howard Ashman, music by Alan Menken and based on the film by Roger Corman with a screenplay by Charles Griffith, it is one of the longest-running off-Broadway shows of all time.

The action centres on down and out florist’s assistant Seymour who becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a macabre craving.

He is secretly in love with his colleague, Audrey and names the plant Audrey Two in her honour.

Audrey Two has plans that are far greater than Seymour can imagine as it grows into a bad-tempered, foul-mouthed carnivore who offers fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite.

Contains strong language and rude bits.

Recommended for anyone over 12 years old.

Little Shop of Horrors plays at the Mart Theatre on Friday 07 February and Saturday 08 February, from 7pm. Tickets, £10 for adults and £7 concessions, available online here.
