A Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, "Little Shop of Horrors" has entertained theatre patrons for more than 30 years. The play by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken follows meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn as he stumbles across a new breed of plant that he names "Audrey II." The foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivorous plant promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it blood.

The TROY production is directed by Tommy Newman, and features Shelby Steverson, a junior theatre major from Crestview, Fla.; Taylor Morgan, a senior theatre major from Deatsville, as Audrey; Paul Roy, a freshman English major from Prattville, as Mr. Mushnik; Mohammed Gueye, a freshman theatre major from Gautier, Miss., as The Plant; Chris Charleston, a sophomore theatre major from Birmingham, as Orin; Kezia Moore, freshman theatre from Montgomery, as Crystal; Anna Maria Mollica, a junior theatre major from Alabaster, as Ronette; and, Payton Buchin, a sophomore theatre major from Dothan, as Chiffon.

The Ensemble includes: Lacey Alexander, a sophomore theatre major from Morris; Taylor Danner, a freshman theatre major from Picayune, Miss.; D.J. Gilroy, a junior theatre major from Enterprise; Jordan Gulledge, a senior theatre and dance major from Montgomery; Marc Johnson, a senior theatre major from Prattville; Brooke Johnston, a senior theatre major from Wetumpka; Nick Motz, a sophomore theatre major from Tuscaloosa; Kameron Porter, a junior theatre and dance major from Birmingham; and, Emily Thomas, a freshman theatre major from Wetumpka.
