The production will feature a roster of talented young actors and Sol Troupe members.

Meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" - after his coworker crush. This R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it...blood. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!

"It follows the harried lives of the residents down on Skid Row, and the lengths they'll go to make a better life for themselves. Who hasn't been there, am I right? Oh, and there's a talking, man-eating plant from an alien planet! Just in time for the Halloween season, come get a little scared, laugh it off, "but whatever you do don't feed the plants"!"
