Beware Earthlings! From the creative team that brought you Dreamgirls, the cult musical comedy Little Shop of Horrors is heading to Rockdale Town Hall for one week only.
This gleefully gruesome musical combines the upbeat, doo wop Motown score, puppet wizardry and a wickedly talented cast.
The toe tapping rock ‘n’ roll score will delight new comers to the show, while those familiar with the movies need no enticement for this raucous trip down memory lane.
Dave Collins stars as the unassuming, hapless flower shop worker Seymour Krelborn.
Playing the object of Seymour’s affections, Audrey, is the Emily Engeman.
The opportunistic shop owner Mr Mushnik, is played by Tim Martin while the role of the demon dentist and Audrey’s sadistic boyfriend is played by Gabriel Burke.
Jade Montalvo, Julia Hyde and Sharonne Lipman play the three sassy Supreme-esque streetwise urchins while Daniel Kenyon voices the most famous fly-trap of all time, Audrey II.
Director Rod Herbert said the Rockdale Musical Society’s production of Little Shop of Horrors will “knock your socks off!”
“With one of the best-known scores in musical theatre combined with the most talented cast I have worked with, audiences are going to be bowled over,” Herbert said.
“I have no doubt it’ll sell out so I suggest booking tickets as soon as possible!’’
Laced with dark humour and irresistible music, Little Shop of Horrors is one of the longest-running off Broadway shows of all time.
Inspired by the 1960 Roger Corman film of the same name, this rock musical version premiered off Broadway in 1982 before enjoying a successful run on Broadway and in London’s West End, eventually inspiring the 1986 film version.
The rocking ‘doo-wop’ score includes the popular song Feed Me, Suddenly Seymour and Somewhere That’s Green.
Landing in Sydney on Wednesday, May 30 for only six performances don’t miss this deviously delicious out-of- this-world musical experience.
