The play is rated PG-13 (the plant DOES eat a lot of cast members!) but we will invite young audience members backstage to view the puppets prior to the start of the Family Matinee on Sunday, July 30.

“Look out, look out, look out, look out!” Drama Dock is bringing the award-winning musical, Little Shop of Horrors to the VCA stage this summer. The performance notes state that the musical satirizes many things: “science fiction, “B” movies, musical comedy itself, and even the Faust legend.”

The story centers on a down-and-out flower shop on Skid Row in New York City. When our hero, Seymour Krelborn, discovers “a strange and interesting plant” during a total eclipse of the sun, he struggles to make it grow. Seymour discovers that the only way he can make the plant survive is by feeding it drops of his own blood! Suddenly the plant grows, the flower shop is a huge success, and Seymour’s life is changing. But now, the plant needs more than a few drops of Seymour’s blood to survive!

When Seymour observes his secret crush, Audrey, being struck by her boyfriend, he gets an idea about how to provide more “food” for the plant, which he has named Audrey II. Thus the musical moves into a hilarious horror/sci-fi satire.

Critical to the success of the production are the multiple Audrey II puppets. Drama Dock is renting the professional quality puppets from Music Theatre International who owns the performance rights to the production. These spectacular puppets will allow the production to animate the show’s most sinister character as it grows from a small plant to man-eating carnivore.

Little Shop was nominated for 15 Drama Desk Awards, winning 7. It also won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical its premier season. It went on to win a Grammy, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for best musical, a Tony, and an Academy Award for the best original song in the film version of the play.
