Nelson Musical Theatre lights up the stage with Little Shop of Horrors, directed by Jane Baken. Little shop of Horrors runs over three weekends with limited tickets available, get in quick before they get eaten up.

Little Shop of Horrors entertains new and seasoned audience members alike, serving them up a delicious treat of music and comedy.

The enchanting Laura Irish stuns as Audrey with the delightful and quirky character that keeps us mesmerised throughout the show. Her voice is superb in Somewhere that’s Green and Suddenly, Seymour. An absolute talent, Laura captivates you from beginning to end.

Charles Anderson brings energy and power to the show by embodying Orin Scrivello, DDS. Perfectly walking the line between comedy and pure evil – you love to hate him. Absolutely rocking everything he does, including owning his performance of Dentist!

Daniel Allan was charmingly perfect as Seymour. This is Dan’s last performance in Nelson, and he is going out on an absolute high. His sweet and innocent Seymour keeps you engaged and brings out the comedy in the part. Dan entertains throughout the entire show.

The entire cast pulls together to create a musical spectacular that keeps the audience enticed. Audiences were left buzzing after they delivered a standing ovation for a show that blew them all away.

Little Shop of Horrors runs over three weekends – from November 20,21 and 26,27,28 and December 3,4,5. Tickets can be purchased from:
