Just your typical comedy-horror-rock musical about a boy, a girl, and a carnivorous houseplant.
Poor, hapless Seymour only wants to impress the girl of his dreams. Perhaps cultivating a blood-thirsty plant will gain him the fame and fortune he needs? Just a few bodies later, and suddenly Seymour is standing in a flower shop on skid row battling a deadly threat to humanity’s very existence. Bring your green thumb and join us for this delightfully twisted cult-movie romp about love, murder, and the American Dream.
The Columbus Dispatch called our production Little Shop of Horrors “an impressive central Ohio debut,” said that it “delivers the goods— and the laughs,” and predicted (quite smartly, we think) that Tantrum would offer “more high quality entertainment to come.”
