BONUS EP: KVTA Little Shop of Horrors

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.

The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!

On this bonus episode of Kankakee Podcast, we dive into the Kankakee Valley Theatre Association’s production of Little Shop of Horrors with Director, Jordyn Ward! 

Performances will be at KVTA’s Black Box Theatre at 1 Stuart Drive in Kankakee this Saturday at 7pm, Sunday at 2pm, and September 23rd and 24th.

Purchase your tickets at or by calling the box office at 815.935.8510.
