About the Play:
One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows, Little Shop Of Horrors feeds the need for musical theatre hilarity with a deviously delectable sci-fi smash about a man-eating plant.

Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatregoers for over 30 years. Alan Menken and Howard Ashman (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular musicals in the world.

The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn – as long as he keeps feeding it – blood. Seymour endeavors to discover that Audrey II not only has out of this world origins, but an intent towards global domination.

In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

You can’t stop the beat with this big and bold musical about one girl’s inspiring dream to dance.

The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards – including Best Musical – is a family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs.

She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a television network – all without denting her ‘do.
