Little Shop Of Horrors Will Leave You Ravenous For More
This year’s musical theatre production, Little Shop of Horrors, was produced and directed by Gil Cowlishaw, supported by Vicky Roberts, and performed with humour and panache by our wonderful troupe of Princethorpe players.
It told the story of Skid Row florist’s clerk Seymour Krelborn who is too shy to declare his love for his co-worker Audrey – until a mysterious exotic plant brings him unexpected fame and fortune. There’s just one problem; the plant has ambitions of its own, and thrives on only one food – human blood.
Gleefully gruesome with awesome props, this tender love story has a fabulous sixties-style score that makes the deliciously campy, sci-fi spoof a 'monster' hit.
Over four performances last week, captivated audiences were transported to a colourful world of larger than life characters as between bites, the carnivorous Audrey II brought the house down singing rhythm and blues. What better way to combat the cold winter night!
Not for the faint hearted the horror comedy rock musical had the audience screaming with laughter and ravenous for more.
