Little Shop of Horrors Screening

May 11 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Event Admission

The Friends of River Oaks Theatre and Buffalo Bayou Partnership co-present this musical performance by TUTS and film screening of the monster-musical classic Little Shop of Horrors (1986) at the Buffalo Bayou Water Works. Starring Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene, Vincent Gardenia, Steve Martin and legendary singer Levi Stubbs. The film features the one of a kind giant man-eating plant Audrey II, an incredible feat of practical special effects and puppeteering.

Bring your blankets (some rental chairs available) and settle in for an evening of raucous botany-based fun, including a pre-film musical performance by Theatre Under The Stars, with an introduction by Artistic Director Dan Knechtges about the history of the original off-broadway play the film is based on and how they differ. Plus Nancy Greig, former director of the Cockrell Butterfly Center, will speak about the monsters of the botanical world. Enjoy fresh popcorn, drinks including Saint Arnolds, and other concessions including Pinks Pizza by the slice while you watch. Film will be presented in English with Spanish subtitles.

Members of BBP and Friends of River Oaks Theatre Cinephile Members enjoy these extra perks!

2 free drinks
1 popcorn
2 loaner camp chairs (while supplies last)
