“Little Shop of Horrors” is based on a low-budget 1960’s movie, that was remade in the very popular 1986 movie version starring Rick Moranis, Steve Martin, & Bill Murray. It is a horror comedy rock musical, by writer Howard Ashman, about a sad floral shop worker who ends up raising a plant who feeds on human flesh and blood. Although it sounds a little disturbing, it’s a comedy & satirizes many things: science fiction, ‘B’ movies, & even musical comedy itself. The music, composed by Alan Menken (who is known for The Little Mermaid, Beauty & the Beast, & Aladdin just to name a few), is in the style of early 1960’s rock ‘n’ roll, early Motown, & doo-wop. It is in the top 10 list of musicals performed in high schools/communities and will be full of great music, dancing, & surprises! It will definitely be a musical that will be fun to be a part of!
