You’ll fall in love with Seymour, the mild-mannered junior florist and his from-afar love, Audrey.  You’ll hate the sadistic dentist who treats Audrey so badly, and you might event cheer for “Audrey II,” the plant that grows up to threaten all their lives.

Whatever you do, don’t feed the plants!

Ned Newley doesn’t even want to be governor. He’s terrified of public speaking, and his poll numbers are impressively bad. To his ever-supportive Chief of Staff, Ned seems destined to fail.  But political consultant Arthur Vance sees things differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. He can’t be elected – unless the public is looking for… the worst candidate to ever run for office.

This is a timely and hilarious comedy that “skewers politics and celebrates democracy.”
