A lovesick hero. A bloodthirsty plant. A mouth-watering musical. These phrases definitely sum up the 1960’s classic Little Shop of Horrors, on now at The Canberra Theatre Centre.
The stage spectacular has something for everyone including popular songs Feed Me, Suddenly Seymour and Somewhere that’s Green.
Laced with dark humour and irresistible music, this multi-award winning, world-wide cult classic musical comedy will be gracing the stage at Canberra Theatre Centre from 25 May.
For those of you who haven’t come across the classic:
When meek, down-and-out floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new plant species that he names ‘Audrey II’ after his co-worker crush, it seems like a serendipitous ticket to fame and fortune.
But as Audrey II grows and grows – into a foul-mouthed, smooth-talking, R&B-singing carnivore – Seymour discovers that feeding his ambition starts to require juicier and less justifiable ingredients.
Before he knows it, our accidental hero Seymour and the gutsy but guileless Audrey must battle the perilous and persuasive plant – not just for their lives, but for the very future of planet earth!
Brought to the stage by Luckiest Productions and Tinderbox Productions, who brought us 2014 multi award-winning Sweet Charity, this gleefully gruesome musical will combine the upbeat, doo wop Motown score, puppet wizardry and a wickedly talented Australian cast.
