Little Shop of Horrors
Little Shop of Horrors is a fun, campy musical based on a 1960s cult classic horror film. Nerdy floral clerk Seymour cultivates a saucy, R&B-singing Venus fly trap-like plant, which he names for his beloved co-worker Audrey. Everything seems great, until the plant’s devious plans threaten to ruin everything. This sci-fi smash hit will have you singing in the aisles.
Little Shop of Horrors opens April 25-May 19. Get your Tickets now!

Michelle: Lincoln, NE
TW: Home now?
Michelle: Wherever the theatre takes me...
TW: What got you into theatre?
Michelle: I fell in love with singing in middle school, and when I was cast in Peter Pan my freshman year of high school and got to dance and sing at the same time, I fell in love with the theatre and have never looked back.
TW: Which words or phrases do you most overuse?
Michelle: YAAAaAaAaAaAasssssss. ‘Yas’ is a go-to for me. Also I love to call people ‘Queen.’ Someone I really look up to you used to call me that, and I just remember it making me feel really good. I use it now because I would like to make other people feel good as well. It’s just something that stuck with me.
TW: How does Audrey relate to you and/or today's women?
Michelle: Audrey is a woman who is trapped by circumstance, but is filled with hope and kindness which she shares with others. She believes that her worth is defined by the relationships she keeps, but learns along the way that that is false, that she can define and choose her destiny for herself, and finds true confidence through sacrifice and love.
TW: What is your bucket list role?
Michelle: It’s constantly changing, but right now my Dream role is to play Cassius in Julius Caesar. I love Shakespeare, and I find that role particularly exciting and brutal, and would like the opportunity to play character has left is that.
TW: What is Audrey's favorite dessert?
Michelle: A red velvet cupcake, with butter cream icing. The icing would be in the shape of a flower.
TW: What conversations do you hope this show starts in the community?
Michelle: I think the show itself raises the question, what would I personally be willing to do for fame and for success? I think with the introduction of social media to our lives, we feel the need to push hard to be noticed and to feel accepted and wanted in our community. But when your actions play against your own personal moral code, is the prize of a moment of glory truly worth it?
