Little Shop of Horrors, seems like all us puppeteers have been thier.

I think i would Be hard pressed to find a Puppeteer in the USA or Canada who hasn't been in or been a part of a Production of Little shop of Horrors, It was my first puppet build for any show when i was in Verona High School ,Here in Glorious Essex County NJ. I did it again when i got out of college for Montclair High school. i also consulted on a couple of local theatre productions.

Its a great show, lots of room to play and create, This past year i worked on Two Builds for the show, One for my Little brothers production at Catholic university in Washington DC, and i helped out my Buddies over at Monkey Boys as well,

Mine was pretty much done on the fly, low budget , with only about a month to build it all , the monkey boys worked Closely with Martin P Robinson, (the puppeteer , and original creator of Audrey II) to build one for Rent around the country, they worked closely from the Designs that Marty created, and they came out great , Check out their Audrey II here

And here are a few images of my Little shop efforts from over the years.
