LAMC Theater Students rehearsing Little Shop of Horrors on stage

Los Angeles Mission College (LAMC) Theatre Arts will present the Broadway and Hollywood classic musical, Little Shop Of Horrors.

Written and composed by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney's The Little MermaidBeauty And The Beast, and Aladdin), Little Shop of Horrors is currently enjoying a star-studded revival on Broadway.

In a failing flower shop on Skid Row, the nerdy Seymour Krelborn happens upon a new breed of plant which he names "Audrey II,” after his coworker crush. After an accidental taste of blood, Audrey II is revealed as a ravenous carnivore, and promises fame and fortune to long as he keeps feeding it. As Audrey II gets bigger and bigger, its appetite demands more human-sized meals. Just as Seymour and Audrey profess their love for each other, Audrey II’s plan for world domination becomes clear, and Seymour must choose between love and escaping Skid Row for good.

Little Shop of Horrors will be presented in the LAMC Arts, Media & Performance (AMP) Theater from May 10–19, with a preview performance on May 9. Tickets range from $10–25 and are now on sale.
