Little Shop of Horrors is the story of Seymour Krelborn, a poor flower shop worker on Skid Row who discovers a “strange and interesting new plant,” named Audrey II, whose very appearance begins to change the fortunes of the struggling flower shop. The plant, however, has some interesting – and sinister – secrets and begins to effect the lives of Seymour, his sweetheart Audrey, and his boss, Mr. Mushnik, and not necessarily in positive ways. The musical includes the popular eponymous theme song as well as Downtown – Skid Row, Suddenly Seymour and I’ll Be A Dentist (the latter most famously sung by comedian Steve Martin in the 1986 film version of the musical).
KP Special Needs Department staff member Melissa Taddeo is the director and KP Middle School music director Ryan DeWolfe is the musical director for this production . Choreography for the show is created and directed by regionally renowned choreographer Lennie Machado, highly regarded for his award-winning choreography for the KP Color Guard and Winter Guard programs.
