The Garden Theatre kicks off its 2024-2025 Broadway on Plant Season with “Little Shop of Horrors.”

The production opens Friday, July 12, and runs through July 28 at the theater, 160 W. Plant St., Winter Garden

Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays; 2 p.m. matinees on Saturdays and Sundays, and July 18 and 25. A performance with audio description will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, July 21. A performance with ASL interpretation will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 27.

Based on the 1960 film by Roger Corman; screen play by Charles Griffith.

A meek and down-on-his-luck floral assistant, Seymour Krelborn, stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” — after his co-worker crush. Seymour’s pining for the beautiful Audrey goes unnoticed while she suffers at the hands of a sadistic dentist boyfriend. Meanwhile, the foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore quickly becomes the shop’s main attraction and promises unending fame and fortune as long as Seymour keeps feeding it … BLOOD. Once attaining the interest of his beautiful co-worker and the admiration of his boss, and not having enough blood of his own, he is powerless to stop looking for new sources of blood. Just when it’s too late, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s extra-terrestrial origins and the true drive for world-domination.

“Little Shop of Horrors” is the winner of the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for best musical, the Drama Desk Award for outstanding musical, and the Outer Critics Circle Award.
