In the play, 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's origins and intent toward global domination.

Jeremiah Jackson, a student at Northern Kentucky University who has done several shows at Campbellsville University, plays Seymour; and Jenny Kawa, who has also done several shows at Campbellsville University--most notably in "Shrek," as Fiona--is his coworker, Audrey.

Campbellsville radio personality Rob Collins returns from an earlier Campbellsville production to play Audrey II.

Others in the cast are: Jamie Killion, associate professor of music (voice) at Campbellsville University, as Mushnik; Kevin Durham, a teacher in Marion County who has performed in many shows at Campbellsville University including "Annie," as Orin, Trisha Hall, a teacher in Green County, as Ronnette; Liz Arnold as Crystal; Emma Grider, a Campbellsville University student, as Chiffon; with Gavin Johnson, also a Campbellsville University student, as the ensemble.

Starr Garrett, director of the theater at Campbellsville who is also professor of theater, is the director of the play. Alia McClendon, community theater manager at Campbellsville University, is music director. Matt Nall, technical director at Campbellsville University, is the tech director for the play.

Jolene Loreno is stage manager, Gabe Taylor is the puppet designer, and Carrie Fowler is the puppeteer. Andrew Ward is the producer.
