KANKAKEE – Get ready to be enthralled by the deviously delicious world of “Little Shop of Horrors,” a Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical that has captivated theater enthusiasts for over three decades.
The creative brilliance of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, known for their iconic work on Disney classics like “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty And The Beast,” and “Aladdin,” is behind this extraordinary production that has taken the global stage by storm.
At the heart of the story is Seymour Krelborn, an unassuming floral assistant, who stumbles upon an extraordinary plant he dubs “Audrey II” after his crush and coworker. This carnivorous, R&B-singing botanical marvel offers Seymour the promise of endless fame and fortune, provided he continually feeds it – with BLOOD. As time unfolds, Seymour unearths Audrey II’s extraterrestrial origins and its chilling plan for worldwide domination.
Under the visionary direction of Jordyn Ward, KVTA Studios’ Black Box Theatre in Kankakee is set to host four exhilarating performances of this sensational musical.
