“Little Shop of Horrors”
A psychedelic comedy thriller from the Academy® Award-winning musical team that brought you Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and Aladdin begins just in time for Halloween! Working on skid row presents its own challenges, but Seymour is also secretly in love with his co-worker Audrey and he would do anything to get her attention and gain her affection. When he stumbles upon an unusual plant, he affectionately names Audrey II, life as he knows it will never be the same. Audrey II (the plant) becomes a sensation and Seymour wins fame, fortune and finally the admiration of Audrey (the girl). Just as Audrey (the girl) escapes the abuse of her sadistic dentist boyfriend, she finds herself trapped yet again. Feed your need for musical hilarity with this delicious gem, but whatever you do, DO NOT FEED THE PLANT!
