Little Shop of Horrors

by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman 27 May 2024 - 31 May 2024

presented by Redruth Amateur Operatic Society Trust

Little Shop of Horrors is a delectable sci-fi horror musical with an electrifying 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”. Little does he know that this ‘strange and unusual plant’ will develop 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.

The music, composed by Menken in the style of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown, includes several well-known tunes, including the title song, "Skid Row (Downtown)", "Somewhere That's Green", and "Suddenly, Seymour".
