A perennially-popular, award-winning musical, Little Shop of Horrors blends doo-wop, rock and Motown into a charming and totally-twisted must-see Trinity Rep event. A strange and unusual plant seems like just the thing to save a beleaguered Skid Row flower shop and its hapless employees, Seymour and Audrey. But when that plant turns out to feed only on blood and is inclined toward world-domination, well… things get a little messy. This deviously-delicious musical will be fun for the whole family.

A perennially-popular, award-winning musical, Little Shop of Horrors blends doo-wop, rock and Motown into a charming and totally-twisted must-see Trinity Rep event. A strange and unusual plant seems like just the thing to save a beleaguered Skid Row flower shop and its hapless employees, Seymour and Audrey. But when that plant turns out to feed only on blood and is inclined toward world-domination, well… things get a little messy. This deviously-delicious musical will be fun for the whole family.
