Little Shop of Horrors at Chequer Mead, October 2017

This classic rock musical has a great doo-wop feel with a lively Motown beat, wrapped around a terrific, out of this world story – a mix of 50’s sci-fi, a poignant love story and a hungry plant with a deep voice!

The story centres around a florist shop on Skid Row – a seedy part of New York.  Three girls, Crystal, Chiffon and Ronnette, resemble a Greek chorus to narrate the story to the audience and characters through song and dialogue.  They are hip, sassy and smart – often singing with a secret smile that says “we know something you don’t know”.  But at the centre is Seymour Krelborn, who is now falling in love with down-trodden Audrey while he acquires a plant that makes strange demands of him.

Great songs!  Terrific dancing! A story to melt your heart ……. and a plant ………
