“Little Shop of Horrors,” the devilishly delicious sci-fi smash musical, will be performed by the young actors of Stages, A Children’s Theatre Workshop, at the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor on Saturday, May 14 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, May 15 at 2 p.m.

The ‘50’s rock doo-wop musical has devoured the hearts of theatergoers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menkin (“Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Aladdin”) are the creative geniuses behind one of the longest running Off-Broadway shows of all time.

Little Shop of Horrors” follows the misadventures of Seymour, a down and out florist assistant who becomes an overnight sensation after discovering an exotic plant with a craving for fresh blood. Soon the plant, Audrey II, grows into an R&B singing carnivore who promises Seymour fame and fortune in exchange for feeding his growing appetite. We soon learn that the plant is an alien planning on world domination. Filled with quirky humor and irresistible songs, this spoof of  ‘50’s sci-fi disaster films has become one of the most popular shows in the world with an

Off -Broadway, Broadway and musical movie version.

Helene Leonard directs and choreographs Stages’ production of Little Shop of Horrors featuring local young actors and Amanda Jones and James Benard on musical accompaniment.

Audrey II, the plant puppet, was designed by Martin P. Robinson, New York City, and constructed by Character Translations, Inc., for Music Theatre International.

Tickets are $15. Call Bay Street Theater at (631) 725-9500 or email info@stagesworkshop.org for more information.
