Marcus Whitman stages ‘Little Shop of Horrors’

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, “Little Shop Of Horrors,” has devoured the hearts of theater-goers for more than 30 years and will be presented this weekend by the Marcus Whitman Visual and Performing Arts program.

Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty And The Beast” and “Aladdin”) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.

The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” — after his co-worker crush. The foul-mouthed, rhythm and blues-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down-and-out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it. Feeding it blood.
