Wimberley Players presents 'Little Shop of Horrors'

Howard Ashman’s "Little Shop of Horrors" comes to life on the Wimberley Players stage June 29 and runs through July 22.

Seymour Krelborn’s life on Skid Row is simple. He has a job at Mr. Mushnik’s Flower Shop and a secret love for his co-worker Audrey. When business at Mushnik’s Flower Shop is failing, Seymour brings home an exotic plant which he names Audrey II that mysteriously appeared after a total eclipse of the sun. We soon learn that Audrey II has a diet that is more than Seymour bargained for when he pricks his finger and she feasts on his blood. Seymour is then faced with a dilemma: should he get rid of the plant that he loves or should he find flesh for her to feed on? 

Based on the 1960s sci-fi comedy film, "Little Shop of Horrors" is written by Howard Ashman and composed by Alan Menken. With upbeat and playful songs such as “Closed for Renovation” and “Dentist!” and the famous love ballad “Suddenly Seymour,” audiences of all ages can expect a uniquely imaginative, touching and funny musical featuring finger-snapping doo-wop, rock-and-roll and early Motown tunes.

After opening off-off Broadway in 1982, "Little Shop of Horrors" ran for five years off Broadway, with 2,209 performances, making it the third-longest running musical and the highest grossing production in off-Broadway history. 

In 1986, a feature film, directed by Frank Oz, was made starring Rick Moranis, Bill Murray and Steve Martin.

The role of Seymour is played by Tyler Livingston and Audrey is played by Amanda Blake, both newcomers to the Wimberley Players Stage. Mr. Mushnick is played by Danny Mosier and Orin is played by Rob Huey, both Wimberley Players veterans. The Doo-Wop girls are played by Katie Scott, Sydney Simpson and Charissa Memrick. Audrey II is voiced by Jackson Pritchett and the puppeteer is Chris Young. Members of the ensemble include Brandon Douglas, John Price, Krysta Price and Kristin Rice. 

The Wimberley Playhouse"Little Shop of Horrors" is directed by Jason Kruger, Adam Witko is the executive producer is and Megan Pritchett  is the  musical director. It is produced by Terri Burney-Bissett and Jana White and produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre International.
