Marc Antolin, Jemima Rooper and Matt Willis will star in the upcoming Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre production of Little Shop Of Horrors.

Marc (Into The Woods, Open Air Theatre) and Jemima (One Man, Two Guvnors, Hand To God) will star as floral shop assistants Seymour and Audrey respectively, with Willis (bassist, vocalist and writer for Busted) will play the gleefully sadistic dentist Orin.

The comic, cult musical classic tells the story of a mean, green plant – Audrey II, played by U.S. drag queen Vicky Vox – who brings fame and fortune to Mr Mushnik’s (played by Forbes Masson, recent star of Travesties) ramshackle florists’ shop on Skid Row. But Audrey II’s killer potential comes with deadly consequences – and a voracious appetite.

Narrating the tale are Renée Lamb, Seyi Omooba and Christina Modestou as Chiffon, Crystal and Ronnette respectively. Joe Allen, Josh Baker, Billy Cullum, Julian Hoult, Rosalind James, Bobbie Little, Helen Siveter and Mary Lynn Tiep complete the cast.

Little Shop Of Horrors is the stage musical of Roger Corman’s hilariously zany film. Its music is from Alan Menken, who has written for numerous Disney films including Aladdin and Hercules, with book and lyrics by Howard Ashman.

Director Maria Aberg, making her Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre debut, said of the show: “The figure of Audrey II represents chaos at the heart of the downtrodden, deeply conventional world of Skid Row. She is everything Seymour’s existence is not – anarchic, queer, wickedly funny.

“Fuelled by Seymour’s own wish for success she grows increasingly demanding, increasingly glamorous, and increasingly unreasonable, until she’s conquered the whole of New York and the show erupts in a huge, defiant celebration of the subversive and the downright fabulous.”

Little Shop Of Horrors comes alive at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre – ‘somewhere that’s green!’ – from 3 August to 15 September.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
