This production of Little Shop of Horrors was staged at the Open Air Theatre in 2018, directed by Maria Aberg. This dark and humorous story follows Seymour Krelborn and his 'strange and interesting plant' named Audrey II. Set in the Open Air Theatre's naturally green surroundings, this production was dubbed as 'THE FULL-BLOODED, FEEL-GOOD HIT OF THE SUMMER' (The Arts Desk). With 'EXCEPTIONAL' (Financial Times) choreography from Lizzi Gee and Tom Scutt's impressive designs, the production was deemed an 'AN ABSOLUTE RIOT' (The Times). The production won three WhatsOnStage Awards: Best Musical Revival, Best Set Design (Tom Scutt) and Best Show Poster.
