The first images of Little Shop of Horrors at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre have been released.

The revival of the cult 80s musical classic opens this week, with a cast that includes Jemima Rooper, Marc Antolin and Matt Willis.

American drag queen Vicky Vox takes on the role of flesh-eating plant Audrey II, traditionally played by a puppet.

The production is directed by Maria Aberg and designed by Tom Scutt.

The musical, which was made into a film in 1986 starring Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene and Steve Martin, tells the story of a band of misfits on Skid Row and their encounter with a carnivorous plant.

In an interview with the Standard, Rooper revealed that the production would be "going to the dark place a bit more".

It runs until September 15; buy tickets with GO London
