    Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre have revealed the casting for their upcoming production of cult musical Little Shop of Horrors. Directed by Maria Aberg, the production plays from 03 August to 15 September 2018.

    For the misfits of Skid Row, life is full of broken dreams and dead ends. But there’s hope on the horizon for flower shop assistant, Seymour, when he discovers a mysterious new plant with killer potential. Will his newfound fame and fortune win the attention of kind, sweet, delicate Audrey? Can he finally break free and be happy…whatever the consequences?

    Marc Antolin and Jemima Rooper play Seymour and Audrey. They will be joined by Forbes Masson in the role of East Side florist Mr Mushnik and Matt Willis in the role of sadistic dentist Orin, and U.S. drag queen Vicky Vox as the plant, Audrey II.

    Director Maria Aberg: “The figure of Audrey II represents chaos at the heart of the downtrodden, deeply conventional world of Skid Row. She is everything Seymour's existence is not - anarchic, queer, wickedly funny. Borne out of his greed, combined with his secret desires, the plant explodes like an out-of-control after party onto the stage, seducing and terrifying in equal measure, all with a knowing glint in the eye and a filthy sense of humour. Fuelled by Seymour's own wish for success she grows increasingly demanding, increasingly glamorous, and increasingly unreasonable, until she's conquered the whole of New York and the show erupts in a huge, defiant celebration of the subversive and the downright fabulous.”

    The cast also includes Joe AllenJosh BakerJulian HoultRosalind JamesBobbie LittleHelen Siveter and Mary Lynn Tiep.
