Little Shop Of Horrors - Kingaroy
The South Burnett Musical Comedy Society will be presenting the debut performance of this year's production "Little Shop Of Horrors" at the Kingaroy Town Hall in Glendon Street, Kingaroy at 7:30pm this evening. Little Shop Of Horrors is a 1980s comedy rock musical about a hapless florist shop worker who raises a plant that feeds on human beings. The main characters are Seymour Krelborn, who runs the florist shop for his overbearing boss Mr Mushnik, and Seymour’s love interest Audrey, who wants to leave her abusive dentist boyfriend Orin. The show’s music, composed by Alan Menken in early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and Motown styles, includes several well-known tunes ... and as the play goes on, the plant steadily grows bigger and hungrier, eating one character after another. Tickets to see the show are $25 for adults, $20 for pensioners and $15 for children and they'll be available at the door.
