until 22 January 2022
Larger than life and twice as much fun, Little Shop of Horrors is the full-blooded, feel-good hit of the summer!
In this dazzling revival, the beloved story of hapless florist Seymour and his blood-thirsty singing plant is brought to life in full technicolour, including musical hits "Somewhere That’s Green", "Feed Me" and "Suddenly Seymour".
One of the most successful musicals of all time, Little Shop of Horrors is visually and vocally stunning, delightfully hilarious and outrageously fun.
Just remember... Don’t feed the plants!
"Satisfyingly energetic, hugely enjoyable and completely bonkers – who could ask for more from the weird and wonderful Little Shop of Horrors?"

"In a strikingly modern move, this production does away with the iconic puppetry of Audrey II for a personification in the shape of performer Brady Peeti, whose voice and knowing face is easy to cheer on. It’s a bold choice by director Benjamin Henson, but one that pays off in separating itself as more than just a carbon copy of the American classic and something with a uniquely Kiwi stamp on it. "
"It’s bursting with energy, irresistible characters, bopping tunes, and is the exact injection of fun you need in your life."
"Little Shop, like you have never seen before… Benjamin Henson’s retro sci-fi, purple and green, larger-than-life, musical stage creation is truly a sight to behold. Audiences should definitely run - don’t walk! - to feed the plants!"
"Little Shop of Horrors offers some welcome escapism, through a high-energy, tongue-in-cheek vision of a cosmic threat to humanity we can all get behind."
"The Court Theatre has created a high quality, original and energetic production that delivers the brief - pure foot-tapping escapism."
