Little Shop of Horrors
The Vagabond Players
Little Shop of Horrors
The gleefully twisted, out of this world cult classic hit musical!
Meek and mild flower shop assistant Seymour Krelborn has stumbled across a peculiar new plant species, which he names after his stunning but vulnerable crush, Audrey. The plant, Audrey Two, has plans that are far greater than Seymour can imagine as it grows into a bad-tempered, foul-mouthed carnivore who offers fame, fortune, the girl he loves, and an escape from skid row in exchange for feeding its growing appetite for BLOOD. Mixing Motown, B-movies, and The American Dream, Little Shop of Horrors spawned the 1986 film starring Steve Martin and Rick Moranis and has continued to delight audiences for more than three decades.
The fine cast is led by Ryan Waechter as Seymour Krelborn, the downtrodden shop assistant, and Annie Arbuckle as Audrey, the pretty co-worker that he adores. Ross Friesen takes the role of Mr. Mushnik, the cranky owner of the run-down flower shop, and Thomas Lamont plays Orin Scrivello, Audrey's abusive boyfriend. Regi Nevada provides the voice of Audrey Two and the cast is rounded out by Carly June Friesen, Janelle Reid and Tiana Swan as Crystal, Ronnette, and Chiffon, the trio of 1960s street urchins who set the scene. Vagabond Players are thrilled to be presenting this vibrant musical in 2017, which is the 35th anniversary of the opening of the show and this great new production will have an all new, custom-built set of puppets to bring Audrey Two to life. Directed by Matthew Davenport with musical direction by Julie Atchison and choreography by Damon Bradley Jang, Little Shop of Horrors is a treat not to be missed.
