062014lshLittle Shop of Horrors, June 20th – 22nd

One slightly insane florist! Two star-crossed lovers!! Three musical female narrators!!! Four victims (and counting) of a monstrous plant with a taste for human flesh!!!! And, YOU!!!!! It all adds up to an oddly poignant, laugh filled, musical tour de force, spiced with homages to doo-wop, 60’s girl groups, “B’ horror movies, and Faust. You will be swallowed up by WDL’s madly entertaining version of Little Shop of Horrors! Wilmington Drama League.
