A concert-style performance directed by Stephen Kish
OPENS OCTOBER 12TH
Feed the need for musical hilarity with this delicious sci-fi smash about a man-eating plant.
The Merc Playhouse is pleased to present the Broadway sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop of Horrors, which has been devouring the hearts of theater goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.
The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out of this world origins and the plant’s intent towards global domination.
Come experience a concert-style presentation of the well-loved musical directed by Stephen Kish and featuring an all-local cast of singers and actors who will be performing all of the doo-woppin’ music and delivering the laughs in a scaled-down version created to fit The Merc stage.
Little Shop of Horrors is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International. All show materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
