Youngstown, OH (August 10, 2023): The Youngstown Playhouse will present Little Shop of Horrors, book and lyrics by Howard Ashman and music by Alan Menken. Directed by Robert Dennick Joki, the production will run September 22 – October 1, 2023 on the Main Stage.

The sci-fi smash musical Little Shop of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. When naming a new breed of plant after his work crush, meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn starts to discover the terrifying truth about his newfound fame. One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows, Little Shop of Horrors was brought to life by the creative geniuses Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin).

The creative team is led under the direction of Robert Dennick Joki (Director/Costume Designer) and includes Caitlyn N. Santiago (Stage Manager), Tyler Stouffer (Music Director), Johnny Pecano (Scenic Director), and Emelia Sherin (Choreographer/Intimacy Coordinator).
