The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" - after his co-worker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it – blood! Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out of this world origins and intent towards global domination.
The B&B Young People’s Theatre Group are pleased to present this toe tapping musical as a half term treat for all the family. The cast and production team who range from 10 to 24 years and have been busy rehearsing throughout the hot summer, are now stage ready.

The youngest performer Ava, who only turned ten a few days ago said “I’m just so excited for this musical.”
I’ve watched the film and stage show on the television, I’ve listened to the Little Shop soundtrack lots of times, and I can’t believe that soon I’ll be on stage performing the show!”
Dancing since she was three or four years old, and now also taking singing lessons, once Ava heard that B&B had chosen Little Shop of Horrors as their next musical production, she was determined to join the cast and insisted that her Mum take her for an audition. Once successful the production team gave Ava her own folder containing the script and she proudly set to work highlighting her scenes before she went about learning them.
Ava added “I am just a little bit nervous about performing on stage in front of lots of people, but most of all I’m really excited. I’m especially excited about meeting Audrey II, the plant as I haven’t seen her yet!”

A spokesperson from the Players Theatre, where B&B have made their home told us “This show is going to be fantastic. We’ve been listening to rehearsals through the Theatre walls and the musical numbers which these young people are producing sound amazing. In fact if we didn’t know, we’d never think it was a group of young people performing.”
