In this dazzling revival, the beloved story of hapless florist Seymour and his bloodthirsty singing plant is brought to life in full technicolour, including musical hits 'Somewhere That’s Green', 'Feed Me' and 'Suddenly Seymour'.

One of the most successful musicals of all time, Little Shop of Horrors* is visually and vocally stunning, delightfully hilarious and outrageously fun.

Just remember... Don’t feed the plants!

"Gloriously succulent and deliciously sinister ... An absolute riot!"
