The cult hit musical classic Little Shop Of Horrors plants itself for a limited run at the New Wimbledon Theatre as part of a national tour, telling a charming, kooky and hilarious tale of greed and greenery.
When Seymour Krelborn, the weedy shop assistant at Mushnik’s Flower Shop in downtrodden Skid Row, discovers a rare but seemingly exotic species of plant, he becomes an overnight sensation, receiving instant fame, fortune – and possibly even the girl of his dreams.
But this all comes at a dangerous price, with the plant wilting unless its voracious appetite for human blood is appeased. As the plant grows into an enormous, bad-tempered and foul-mouthed carnivore, will Seymour give into his conscience, or be lost to his newfound life of love and luxury?
With music by the legendary Alan Menken, best known for his numerous Walt Disney film scores, and starring Rhydian Roberts as sadistic dentist Orin Scrivello, Little Shop Of Horrors is a rollicking, raucous and radiant musical, and one of the longest running off-Broadway shows of all time.
