Storyhouse’s latest summer musical will be a new production of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken’s musical Little Shop of Horrors.
The perennial cult-favourite sci-fi musical has devoured the hearts of audiences around the world for more than 30 years, following the story of floral assistant Seymour who stumbles across a new breed of carnivorous plant that promises to grant him fame, fortune and all his desires – as long as the blood keeps flowing.
Little Shop of Horrors is the latest show to be produced by Storyhouse and will feature the creative talent of Olivier award winning director and choreographer Stephen Mear (Gypsy, starring Imelda Staunton, West End’s Mary Poppins with Sir Matthew Bourne). Jess Curtis will design.
Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world. Little Shop of Horrors is based on a Roger Corman thriller from the 1960’s (which featured a young Jack Nicholson).
