The quirky musical comedy hasn’t even finished its premiere season in Sydney and has already announced it will return in July due to its incredible popularity and demand for more Little Shop of Horrors.
Starring Brent Hill and Esther Hannaford, the return season will be staged at the Roslyn Packer Theatre in Sydney from 20 July to 31 July.
“Following the critical response and overwhelming demand for tickets, we are delighted to announce a return Sydney season of Little Shop of Horrors at the Roslyn Packer Theatre. Sydneysiders who are lucky enough to enjoy an up-close and personal experience with Audrey II at the Hayes Theatre, will now have the opportunity to witness this extraordinary production in all its glory on a bigger stage and bigger theatre. For all those musical theatre goers that missed out on tickets, here’s your chance to see this sensational revival of Little Shop of Horrors that is slowly taking over the country!”, said producers.
The production is currently playing at Hayes Theatre Co where it has received glowing reviews from critics and audiences alike.
‘4.5 stars… It is hard to imagine a more satisfying revival of this beloved minor classic’– Sydney Morning Herald
‘The nine-member cast is an all singing, all dancing knockout, but Hill and Hannaford are the glorious lynchpin. When they get together for Suddenly Seymour, watch out. The place goes off.’ – The Australian
‘…a production that consistently rocks, surprises and thrills. This is the Little Shop of Horrors for today…it’s overwhelmingly, dazzlingly and terrifyingly alive…brilliantly executed by costume designer Tim Chappel and set designer Owen Phillips.’ – Daily Review
‘Little Shop of Horrors has always been a crowd pleaser. But this sensational production raises it to new heights. With Owen Phillips’ surprising set, Tim Chappel’s kitsch costuming and Andrew Hallsworth’s witty choreography, this is an eye popping delight. Dean Bryant brings it all together in a production that is dazzling entertaining, creepy in a comical way and yet tough enough to leave you pondering it long afterwards.’ – Sunday Telegraph
Produced by Luckiest Productions and Tinderbox Productions this gleefully gruesome musical combines the upbeat, doo wop Motown score, puppet wizardry and a wickedly talented Australian cast. Award-winning creative duo Director Dean Bryant and Choreographer Andrew Hallsworth have once again combined their ingenious minds to bring Howard Ashman and Alan Menken’s book and score to life, creating a deviously delicious out-of-this-world musical experience. They have joined forces with master puppet-makers Erth to create a brand new Audrey II for the 21st century.
