MANCHESTER — The Majestic Theatre will present “Little Shop of Horrors” on May 31 and June 2.
About the show: A down-and out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon “Audrey II” grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination!
One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies has become a household name, thanks to a highly successful film version and a score by the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, who redefined the animated musical film with Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. Charming, tuneful and hilarious, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, “Little Shop of Horrors” never fails to entertain.
“Little Shop of Horrors” will be presented on Fri. and Sat., May 31 and June 1 at 7:00 p.m. and on Sun., June 2 at 2:00 p.m. at The Manchester Community Music School’s Holy Cross Hall, located at 2291 Elm Street in Manchester.
Tickets are $18.00 for adults, $15.00 for seniors 65 and above and $12.00 for youth 17 and under. Tickets can be purchased by visiting or calling the box office at 669-7469, online at www.majestictheatre.net, or at the door prior to the performance.
