MONROE — After a two year long hiatus from musical productions, Monroe Theatre Guild welcomes classic horror-comedy rock musical, “Little Shop of Horrors” as their next production, part of the Colony Brands performance series. Director Andrew Rocheleau and musical director Daniel Talcott have worked alongside dozens of MTG volunteers to bring the whimsical musical to center stage. 

The story follows a meek floral assistant, Seymour Krelborn, who stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” — after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, blood. Over time Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out of this world origins and intent towards global domination. 

The musical, adapted from the low-budget 1960 black comedy film “The Little Shop of Horrors”, was later adapted to arguably the most well-known version of the story, “Little Shop of Horrors’’ a 1986 American horror comedy musical film directed by Frank Oz, featuring Ellen Greene, Rick Moranis, and Steve Martin. Guests are sure to be thrilled by the early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown influences featuring several well-known tunes, “Skid Row (Downtown)”, “Somewhere That’s Green”, and “Suddenly, Seymour”.

The show will have seven performances on the Colony Brands Stage: Friday, Oct. 7 and Saturday, Oct. 8 at 7 p.m.; Sunday, Oct. 9 at 2 p.m.; Thursday, Oct. 13, Friday, Oct. 14, and Saturday, Oct. 15 at 7 p.m.; closing the show Sunday, Oct. 16 at 2 p.m.
