This fantastic cast is backed by an all-teenage chorus. Seymour is the clumsy employee of Mushnik’s Flower Shop on skid row, where he daydreams of Audrey, his co-worker. As business evaporates, Mr Mushnik decides to close the shop. However, Seymour and Audrey tell him that they think displaying something interesting, strange and new in the window that will attract business: a flytrap-esque plant he calls Audrey II. The plant immediately attracts business. But after the store closes, the plant begins to wilt, and Mr Mushnik orders Seymour to ‘fix’ it. Seymour soon discovers the dangerous secret to keeping the plant alive.

This company is run by 17-year-old, Jack Cunningham who is thrilled to bring this much anticipated musical back to Waterford. “It’s a story of love, family, friendship and most importantly, blood!” Jack joked. “It’s a show that anyone can enjoy so we highly urge everyone and anyone to come out and support local theatre.”
