Live Live Cinema: The Little Shop of Horrors – Lockdown Edition

17 Mar 2022 to 27 Mar 2022
March 17 - 27
A LIVE LIVE CINEMA ONLINE OFFERING The outrageously entertaining Live Live Cinema hit comes to your screen
Event type: 
Music, Theatre
$20 individual, $45 Household


Get set for the audacious, unpredictable and side-splitting classic by Roger Corman, The Little Shop of Horrors (1960), brought to you in a whole new frame.

A heart-racing collision of theatre, music and cinema, this Live Live Cinema adventure stretches the limits of what four performers can do: working at break-neck speed across multiple countries to re-voice a range of characters in perfect lip synch whilst creating live sound effects and playing an original score composed by Leon Radojkovic (Live Live Cinema’s Little Shop of Horrors, Dementia 13 and Carnival of Souls).

Adapted from the acclaimed 2015 live production, watch from home as this reimagined camp comedy-horror cult hit is screened alongside the celebrated talents of Byron Coll (Mr Burns. A Post-Electric Play, Wellington Paranormal), Barnie Duncan (Nothing Trivial, Outrageous Fortune), Laughton Kora (Amadeus, Jesus Christ Superstar) and Hayley Sproull (TVNZ’s Have You Been Paying Attention?, Golden Boy), led by renowned director Oliver Driver.

Live Live Cinema: The Little Shop of Horrors – Lockdown Edition is set to be a riotous and hilarious night on the couch, snap up your tickets now. It’s a wild (socially distant) ride.

This special digital presentation is in lieu of the postponed live World Premiere of Live Live Cinema: Night of the Living Dead at The Hollywood, Avondale due to New Zealand at RED under the COVID-19 Protection Framework.
