Little Shop of Horrors

Following the sell-out success of last year’s production of The Addams Family, Leeds Grand Youth Theatre (LGYT) will be taking over The Varieties stage for the 11th year this summer with a brand-new revival of the ever-popular horror musical Little Shop of Horrors.

It’s New York, 1960: Seymour Krelbourne, a hapless orphan, changes the fortunes of Mushnik’s failing flower shop on Skid Row when he finds a very strange-looking plant in the market after a sudden eclipse of the sun. He names the plant Audrey 2 after co-worker and woman of his dreams, Audrey Fulquard, but it turns out the sinister succulent who sings for its supper has ambitions of his own, and before you can say Baby Bio, Seymour is feeding the horticultural horror a string of supporting cast members…

Can Seymour and Audrey break free of Skid Row and be happy? Or will their all-consuming love be… well… CONSUMED!

With a cast of 60 young people aged 8-18 years and a live pit band, LGYT brings their signature style to this well-loved classic.
