Little Shop Of Horrors At Mill Mountain Theatre

Mill Mountain Theatre presents the hilarious Little Shop Of Horrors, October 4th-22nd.

From the music & lyrical team that brought you the original animated film “Disney’s Beauty & The Beast” comes a musical of a different style. Part horror comedy musical, part sci-fi spoof; all delicious fun, Little Shop of Horrors has been making audiences all over the country scream with laughter since its debut in the early 80’s.

A meek floral assistant Seymour Krelbourn, played by Cole Smith, discovers a new breed of plant and names it “Audrey II” after his co-worker crush. The plant, however, has a mind of its own, and promises Seymour fame and fortune as long as Seymour feeds him what he really wants- BLOOD!

The musical is based off the 1960 low-budget cult film directed by Roger Corman, starring Jonathan Haze as Seymour and Jackie Joseph as Audrey. The original Off-Broadway production ran for five years after its premiere at the Orpheum Theatre in 1982.

Director Alicia Varcoe “This cult favorite musical is sure to please our Roanoke Valley audiences- its equal parts funny, frightening and touching, and full of catchy songs. I’m thrilled to work with such a stellar cast to bring this musical to Mill Mountain Theatre for the very first time.”

Turned into a movie in 1986, starring Rick Moranis as Seymour, Steve Martin as Audrey’s sadistic dentist boyfriend, and Levi Stubbs as the voice of Audrey II. Featuring a hit 1960s pop/rock score by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, this smash-hit musical features the songs “Suddenly Seymour,” “Skid Row,” “Feed Me (Git It)” and many more.

Rated: PG for Comical Violence – suitable for younger audiences
