LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS Auditions!

TIDEWATER PLAYERS is trilled to announce auditions for

our February Production of Alan Menken and Howard Ashman’s classic musical comedy thriller

LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS

A deviously delicious Broadway salute to the Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre audiences for 40 years. Based on Roger Corman’s classic 1960s B movie, Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little MermaidBeauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) provide a masterpiece of Faustian proportion set to the beat of a powerhouse score inspired by the best sounds of the 60s, which nobody does better than Menken & Ashman,. Watch as lowly greenthumb Seymour tries to win the heart of down and out coworker Audrey with a strange and interesting new plant he has cultivated. As the plant becomes famous and Seymour a success, he is faced with making a devilish deal that could win him everything–or cost him the things he loves most. Menken & Ashman’s now classic score features hits such as “Downtown”, audience favorite “Suddenly Seymore”, and the catchy, finger-snapping title song

Little Shop of Horrors is presented by arrangement with Musical Theater International.
