Don’t Feed the Plants… but do come to the show!

25 May 2023

The time has finally come for the opening night of our very own production of Little Shop of Horrors and we can’t wait for our beautiful theatre to be filled with audience members, ready for the musical comedy – with bite!

The show is a brilliant spoof of a horror movie from the fifties. Seymour Krelborn – a poor, run-down florist working on the decrepit Skid Row, finds a mysterious plant from outer space with a thirst for blood. The carnivorous plant begins to grow and the flower shop becomes an overnight sensation, but questions are soon asked as townsfolk begin to mysteriously disappear… Can Seymour give up his fortune and fame to save the world from global plant domination?

Little Shop of Horrors has everything from man-eating plants, a classic love story, catchy musical numbers and of course, fun and entertainment throughout. Our wonderful cast represent the talent in and around the High Peak and this opportunity has provided them with a fantastic chance to showcase their skills and perform live on the Buxton Opera House stage as we celebrate our 120th year. They are also supported by our brilliant professional creative and technical team to offer a truly memorable experience.

Special thanks go to High Peak Borough Council, Arts Council England and Buxton Civic Association for supporting this production, and of course, you, our audience.

Little Shop of Horrors is running from Thursday 25 - Sunday 28 May and tickets are priced at £21-£25. To book please contact our Box Office team on 01298 72190, or follow the link below.
