LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS at Mill Mountain Theatre
Mill Mountain Theatre presents the hilarious Little Shop Of Horrors, October 4th-22nd. From the music & lyrical team that brought you the original animated film "Disney's Beauty & The Beast" comes a musical of a different style. Part horror comedy musical, part sci-fi spoof; all delicious fun, Little Shop of Horrors has been making audiences all over the country scream with laughter since its debut in the early 80's.
Nine actors from all over the country come together in Roanoke to bring you the cult musical classic Little Shop of Horrors running October 4th-22nd on the Trinkle Main Stage at Mill Mountain Theatre. The show is based off the 1960 low-budget cult film directed by Roger Corman, starring Jonathan Haze as Seymour and Jackie Joseph as Audrey. The original Off-Broadway production ran for five years after its premiere at the Orpheum Theatre in 1982.
