X Factor finalist Rhydian stars in the charming, kooky and hilarious musical cult classic Little Shop of Horrors which is heading for Sheffield Lyceum
Set in the 1950s, the show tells the story of Seymour Krelborn, assistant at Mushnik’s Flower Shop in downtrodden Skid Row, who becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers a strange and exotic plant. In order to impress glamorous Audrey, the shop assistant he’s secretly in love with, he names it Audrey Two.
But Audrey Two has a mind of its own, and soon grows into a bad-tempered, foul-mouthed carnivore with an appetite that can’t be satisfied. Seymour must keep the meals coming to stop his prized plant from wilting, but how far is he willing to go to get the girl of his dreams?
