Be careful what you wish for…..

If you think you know all there is to know about the musical Little Shop of Horrors perhaps you might need to think again.

The Court Theatre’s summer revival of Little Shop of Horrors gives a fresh take to this genially gruesome classic. The shop itself has morphed into a van – a shop on wheels – something very familiar to Christchurch citizens so used to pop up stores and container malls.

Never fear though, the beloved story of hapless florist shop worker Seymour and his blood-thirsty singing plant Audrey II will be brought to life with all the glorious technicolour and razzamatazz of costumes, set and killer performances we expect from The Court Theatre’s musical productions. Do watch out for Audrey II, as the carnivorous succulent may not be quite what you expect.

The show’s music, composed in the style of early 1960s rock and roll and doo-wop includes a number of hits – “Somewhere That’s Green”, “Feed Me” and “Suddenly, Seymour” – all performed by The Court’s deluxe cast.

Little Shop of Horrors is disarmingly funny, clever and tuneful. On at The Court Theatre from November 20 – January 1, 2022.

Just remember… Don’t feed the plants! Ph: 0800 333 100.
