 Book and Lyrics by Howard Ashman, Music by Alan Menken

“Down on Skid Row” guys like Seymour Krelborn can’t catch a break. That is, until he stumbles upon an out-of-this-world plant that he names “Audrey II” – after his coworker crush. Suddenly Seymour’s luck begins to change. But when the plant starts to make demands (“Feed Me!”), Seymour learns that he must make a devilish deal to keep the good times going. Can Seymour escape the clutches of his R&B singing vegetable bent on global domination? A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors opened for business to Loyd audiences 15 years ago! This time, we’re taking a new look at an old favorite. Directed by Cliff Thompson, Becky Hartle and Madison Davis. Designed by Brandyn Graves.

Black Box Theatre

by Jeffrey Hatcher

On the fog-bound streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll’s experiments with exotic “powders and tinctures” have brought forth his other self—Edward Hyde, a sensualist and villain free to commit the sins Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend. When Hyde meets a woman who stirs his interest, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments. But Hyde has other ideas, and so the two sides battle each other in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse to determine who shall be the master and who his slave. An exciting exploration of Robert Lewis Stevenson’s horror story. Directed by Lakyn Wools.
