This classic rock musical has a great doo-wop feel with a lively Motown beat, wrapped around a terrific, out of this world story – a mix of 50’s sci-fi, a poignant love story and a hungry plant with a deep voice!
The story centres around a florist shop on Skid Row – a seedy part of New York. Three girls, Crystal, Chiffon and Ronnette, resemble a Greek chorus to narrate the story to the audience and characters through song and dialogue. They are hip, sassy and smart – often singing with a secret smile that says “we know something you don’t know”. But at the centre is Seymour Krelborn, who is now falling in love with down-trodden Audrey while he acquires a plant that makes strange demands of him.
Great songs! Terrific dancing! A story to melt your heart ……. and a plant ………

Is Jack Manningham slowly, deliberately, driving his wife, Bella, insane or is she following her mother’s descent into madness?
This classic thriller, set in Victorian London, was first produced in 1938 and later filmed twice, in Britain and the USA, Ingrid Bergman winning an Oscar for her portrayal of Bella Manningham in the later version. The play gave rise to the term ‘gaslighting’.
