Little Shop of Horrors

Little Shop of Horrors

One of our most popular and comprehensive show packages, Little Shop of Horrors

Seymour, an orphan and a nerd, is taken in and given a job by Mr. Mushnik, the owner of a run down Florists in the seedy part of town. Seymour spends his time doing menial tasks and dreaming of the shop assistant, Audrey. One day, just after an eclipse of the Sun, Seymour discovers a strange plant. He buys it and names is Audrey II. While caring for Audrey II, Seymour discovers the plant's rather unique appetite. The plant grows and grows, as does Seymour's infatuation for Audrey, but who will get her first? FEED ME!

The Accord Stageworks Little Shop of Horrors set is a truly awesome addition to your performance, designed around our unique plants the set goes hand in hand to offer a polished and finished production.

Plant Pod 1

The baby of the Audrey II family. POD 1 is planted in a replica Maxwell House coffee tin, just like the original 1986 movie.

The tin has a false bottom allowing the puppeteer to operate the plant from underneath in conjunction with our counter (available for hire with our set), where the puppeteer puts their hand through and up into the head of Audrey, with the neck controlled with the arm and the jaw by the hand. The leaves on Audrey 1 also wilt, operated via a hidden string and pulley system.

 

Plant Pod 2

An exciting and very animated number two plant. POD 2 allows the actor/puppeteer to have full control over the puppet whilst being able to move around the stage, singing, acting and even dancing!

Audrey 2 is a jacket design, with Audrey sat in a plant pot that is attached and hung from the jacket that the puppeteer wears. This means that all the weight, which is very little is almost unfelt due to it being spread over the body of the puppeteer, this is further held into position with straps going through the bespokely made jacket to hold the plant pot close to the body. A prosthetic arm is in place around the plant pot to give the appearance that it is being held with both hands. The puppeteers free hand is put through Audrey's neck and the hand is slid into the head, with the arm being camouflaged to give the appearance that Audrey is completely free from Seymour. With the head and neck being operated with the freedom of the puppeteer you can gain an amazing amount of realism and individuality to Audrey 2 She just keeps growing!

 

Plant Pod 3

Audrey II POD 3 an audience stopper! Gasps, laughs, and shock will flutter around your auditorium as number 3 comes to life, all by the aid of one single puppeteer.

Pod 3 is a sit-down puppet, whose jaws are operated in a scissor like motion with your arms. This puppet is extremely light given its size and comes in at a total weight of 18.5kg, of which all of it is harnessed and balanced upon the shoulders of the puppeteer. This makes the weight almost completely unnoticeable to the puppeteer inside, and leaves them to the more creative task of bringing Audrey to life. In addition we have attached the foliage around the plant to the puppeteers legs so to bring the puppet even more to life and to create a more dynamic and natural way for pod 3 to express herself on stage.

 

Plant Pod 4

The largest of all of the four POD ‘s! With the size, lightness and ease of use its hard to understand that there are no mechanics involved within the striking Audrey 4.

Pod 4 is made so light and easy to use because of the plant balancing on a pivot in the top jaw, when attached to the bottom jaw she sits perfectly balanced in a neutral position as shown below. This perfect weight balancing is the key to how successfully she can be operated, easily by one hand if so desired.

Audrey 4 swallows most average size people down the specially constructed trap door tongue gullet and onto a slide where the victim can either exit the Plant through a hidden hole in the rear of the planter, or if this is not possible, depending upon position of her upon your stage can quite easily sit inside with the puppeteer till the end of the scene and blackout. The foliage on Pod 4 is controlled by two extra puppeteers lying down on either side of the planter, these are hidden from site and allow Pod4 to become completely animated like Pod 3.
