CRANFORD — The talented denizens of Skid Row have been rehearsing for the upcoming CDC Theatre production of “Little Shop of Horrors,” book and lyrics by Howard Ashman, music by Alan Menkin.

A down-and-out floral assistant, Seymour Krelborn, played by Zach Mazouat, becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Audrey, the love of Seymour’s life, is played by Jenna Ravenda. Charming, tuneful and hilarious, with tongue planted firmly in cheek, this affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies runs Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. from Friday, Oct. 11, through Saturday, Oct. 26. For tickets and information, visit www.cdctheatre.org or call 908-276-7611.
