Cast Announced for LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS at Williams Street Repertory

Williams Street Repertory has announced casting for their upcoming production of "Little Shop of Horrors." This campy musical based on the 1960s cult horror film opens on October 6, 2017 and runs select dates through October 29, 2017 at Raue Center For The Arts.

"I am excited to work on this rocking, 'Stranger Things'-esque love story/cautionary tale with a top-notch cast and design team," says director Joe Lehman. "There will be many new faces for WSR audiences to be wowed by with this musical vehicle that delivers thrills and chills for the entire family!"

WSR's production will feature a variety of Chicago-area talent including Neil Stratman, Kiersten Frumkin, Mark R. Mahallak?*, Christopher Davis?, Brendan Gaughan, Fredrick Harris, Brittani Moore, Emily Senkowsky and Sierra White*.

This gleefully gruesome musical follows meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn, who stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" after his co-worker crush. This R&B -singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down-and-out Seymour, as long as he keeps feeding it - BLOOD! Over time, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out-of-this-world origins and intent toward global domination!

This campy musical based on the 1960's cult horror film has devoured the hearts of theatergoers for over 30 years!
