'Feed me Seymour!' Little Shop of Horrors premieres Sept. 16

Sep. 11—The Henderson County Performing Arts Center will host the classic musical, "Little Shop of Horrors," at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 16 through 18 and Sept. 23 through 25 with a special matinee performance at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 19.

"Thespians from across the area have been laboring tirelessly to provide the community with an opportunity to see this amazing rendition of the cult classic while supporting the arts locally," said director Kara Davis.

The show is a funny and lyrical tale about a meek floral assistant, Seymour Krelborn who pines over his coworker Audrey. After finding an R&B singing carnivorous plant he names Audrey II, hilarious and morbid adventures follow. Business starts to flourish, but Krelborn soon finds out the sassy mouthed plant has strange origins, a bloodthirsty diet and intentions for global domination forcing him to set meekness aside.
