The latest production from TAOS Musical Theatre, ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ is a horror comedy rock musical with music by Alan (‘Disney’) Menken and lyrics and a book by Howard Ashman. The story follows a hapless florist shop worker who raises a plant that feeds on human blood and flesh. The musical is based on the low-budget 1960 black comedy film The Little Shop of Horrors and pays homage to (whilst gently making fun of) the low-budget US sci-fi horror film genre of the 1950s and 60s. The music, composed by Menken in the style of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown, includes several well-known tunes, including the title song, “Skid Row (Downtown)”, “Somewhere That’s Green”, and “Suddenly, Seymour”.
This production will be running at the Arc Theatre, Trowbridge, nightly from Tuesday November 26th until Saturday November 30th, at 7.30pm: please click here to book tickets.
