Seymour finds new found fame and fortune after discovering a plant that is out of this world. The plant, Audrey II, is named after Seymour’s crush and co-worker Audrey (Isabel Santiago). While the plant brings new opportunities to Seymore and the flower shop, it does not come without cost. Throughout the show, the plant will be played by series of puppets that start out as a small seedling, and progresses into a monstrous creature that is poised for global domination. The show is brought to life with the help of Stephanie Card, Assistant Choreographer and Associate Director Scott Hitz who is doubling as a puppeteer mentor.
