Little Shop... big fun

It comes from a time when the American dream was a “sweet little house” in the suburbs, when “bad boy” heroes wore leather and rode motorcycles – and when movies sublimated the Cold War and threat of nuclear disaster into the threat of alien invasion, warning the public to “watch the skies.”

Gruesomely delightful Little Shop of Horrors

Cookstown – Spring is in the air, and gardeners everywhere are itching to get their fingers into the dirt – so what more fitting show could South Simcoe Theatre present than Little Shop of Horrors, a musical about a meek and lovesick floral assistant who discovers an exotic plant with an unfortunate craving?
