Little Shop of Horrors presented by the Kansas City Repertory Theatre
Long before Bill Gates made nerds trendy, there was Seymour Krelborn, a hapless florist searching for love, aided by a bizarre plant with an insatiable appetite for human blood. With Motown-style music and true to its original roots – Roger Corman’s 1960s black comedy film and the subsequent Off-Broadway show – Little Shop of Horrors is a love story about what happens when botany goes horribly wrong. Set in the intimate Copaken Stage in downtown’s P&L District, Little Shop of Horrors promises to become a Kansas City cult favorite.
Appropriate for middle school and up.
