With musical direction by Ken McGraw, music theater director, this deviously delicious sci-fi smash, Little Shop of Horrors, is known for devouring hearts. It tells the story of floral assistant, Seymour Krelborn, who stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “the Audrey II.” His foul-mouthed, R&B-singing plant promises Seymour unending fame and fortune on one condition—Seymour must keep feeding it blood.
Little Shop of Horrors, the musical based on the 1960 film of the same name, is born from the same creative team responsible for Disney’s The Little Mermaid,Beauty and The Beast, and Aladdin. The book and lyrics were written by Howard Ashman and the music was written by Alan Menken.
General admission is $10, $5 for students and seniors and free for all Wilkes students, faculty and staff with ID. For more information, please call the box office at 570-408-4540.
