Little Shop of Horrors

When: Fridays, Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. and Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through Nov. 3 2013

Before Rick Moranis could make the character of nerdy florist’s assistant Seymour Krelborn famous in the cult classic film Little Shop of Horrors, the musical, based on Roger Corman’s low-budget 1960 film of the same name, was being staged off-Broadway. Sweeney Todd had come out a few years earlier, and along those same bloody lines, Howard Ashman and Alan Menken wrote the 1982 musical about a man who must resort to murder in order to feed his oh-so-carnivorous plant, Audrey II. Spokane Valley’s Ignite! Community Theatre takes on the production this weekend and next. The show is directed by Troy Nickerson (his first collaboration with the company) and Heather McHenry-Kroetch.
