"Little shop ... "Little Shop of Horrors" will be planted from Tuesday, March 28, through Sunday, April 2 at Shea's Performing Arts Center, 646 Main St., Buffalo.

"Little Shop of Horrors" is the story of Seymour Krelbourn, a meek Skid Row florist who makes a Faustian pact with a tiny plant in order to win the heart of Audrey, the girl he loves.

While Audrey doesn't notice the romance blooming between them, she does recognize the moneymaking potential of the exotic little plant (Audrey II). Soon money pours in and Seymour becomes a celebrity, but behind the glamour and fame lies a secret Seymour can't reveal - this strange and unusual plant's favorite food is ... human blood.

"Little Shop of Horrors" features a spectacular planet-panicking plant designed by The Jim Henson Workshop and Martin P. Robinson.

"Little Shop of Horrors" is based on the 1960 Roger Corman film. The musical had its world premiere in 1982, and the popular film version with Rick Moranis and Steve Martin was in 1986. The Broadway premiere was in 2003.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; 8 p.m. Friday; 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday; and 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $22.50-$55.50 and are available by calling Ticketmaster at 852-5000, online at www.ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets and the Shea's ticket office, 650 Main St.
