Metropolis Presents In-Person, Outdoor Production of LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS

Metropolis Performing Arts Centre will present outdoor performances of Little Shop of Horrors May 6 - June 19, 2021.

Deviously delicious sci-fi smash hit musical Little Shop of Horrors has devoured audience's hearts for decades. During a solar eclipse, shy, love-struck floral assistant Seymour discovers a strange and unusual plant he names "Audrey II"- after his co- worker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-wailing carnivore plant promises the lonely florist fame, fortune, and escape from life on skid row with the girl of his dreams, as long as he keeps supplying the menace with its fix: a steady supply of blood. Suddenly, Seymour discovers Audrey II's alien origins and quest for world domination. Little Shop of Horrors is a charming, quirky, tongue-in-cheek comedy from the creative geniuses Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin).

Metropolis is excited to have the opportunity to continue to produce their 20th Anniversary Season live and in person!
