“Little Shop of Horrors” opens at Mount Baker Theatre

Down-and-out skid row floral assistant Seymour becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. It isn’t long before “Audrey II” has grown from a harmless shrub into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who promises Seymour fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite.

Presented by Mount Baker Theatre’s Repertory Theatre, “Little Shop of Horrors” spoofs 1950s sci-fi movies, and includes a score by the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken.

One of the longest-running off-Broadway shows of all time, it plays at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 24, 25, 26; 3 and 7:30 p.m. Sept. 27; and 3 p.m. Sept. 28 at Mount Baker Theatre, 104 N. Commercial St.

Tickets, $20 to $45, can be reserved at 360-734-6080 and mountbakertheatre.com.
