July 11, 2016: The Windham Theatre Guild is excited to present live on stage Little Shop of Horrors opening Friday, July 22nd at the Burton Leavitt Theatre, 779 Main Street, Willimantic.
A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.
The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!
Directing Little Shop of Horros is Victor Funderburk, Musical Director is Ken Clark, and Thomas Beebe has creatively choreographed the show.
