The Little Shop of Horrors could not exist if not for senior Owen Lawrence ‘20, playing Seymour, and sophomore Ayla Shively ‘22, playing Audrey. These scene partners are integral in telling the show’s story of a meek flower shop assistant pining for his co-worker. When an unusual plant, named Audrey II, comes into the mix, then the real fun begins! See what Lawrence and Shively had to say on bringing the shop to life on stage and off.
Students at GFA have the power to try as many different roles and responsibilities as they wish.

Mix together a man-eating plant, charm, manipulation and a sassy voice, and there is Little Shop of Horrors’ Audrey II, played by Elizabeth Jones '23.
