Little Shop of Horrors.

Little Shop of Horrors.
Book and Lyrics Howard Ashman. Music: Alan Menkin. Gold Coast Little Theatre, Southport. Director: Brady Watkins. Nov 11th – Dec 9th, 2017                                                            

Audrey ll, the blood thirsty, flesh eating plant stars in this staging of the popular cult musical Little Shop of Horrors. The plant’s continual growth throughout the show has pizzazz, making the cast work hard to keep up with its outrageous antics (Audrey ll was created by the North Queensland Opera and Music Theatre and took a year to conceive and construct by Chris Ahern and Damien Jackson).

The human contributors are: Seymour – Ethan Liboiron, Audrey-Harmony Breen, Mr Mushnik-Johnathon Fife, The Dentist (and voice of Audrey ll)-Clay English, Ronette-Lucy Koschell, Chiffon-Ruby Hunter, Crystal-Kristine Dennis and as Audrey ll’s inner self; puppet master- Chris Dennis.

Director Brady Watkins, Musical Director Ben Murray and Choreographer Laura Carrett have created a production that is both visually and musically enjoyable. This delightful romp is set in and around New York’s Skid Row, the derelict centre of the Big Apple.

Meeting Audrey ll is NOT for the faint hearted!
