‘Little Shop of Horrors’ performances planned


SIDNEY — The Historic Sidney Theatre is presenting “Little Shop of Horrors1” a musical and dinner theatre experience.

“Little Shop of Horrors” is a horror comedy rock musical with music by Alan Menken and lyrics and a book by Howard Ashman. Meek flower shop assistant Seymour pines for co-worker Audrey. During a total eclipse, he discovers an unusual plant he names Audrey II, which feeds only on human flesh and blood. The growing plant attracts a great deal of business for the previously struggling store. After Seymour feeds Audrey’s boyfriend, Orin, to the plant after Orin’s accidental death, he must come up with more bodies for the increasingly bloodthirsty plant.

Directed by Kevin Frazier-Jones and with a cast comprised of local talent this is a show you will want to see!
