Little Shop of Horrors opens on April 25 - May 19. This musical adaptation of the cult classic film will be loaded with laughs and upbeat musical numbers. The 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. We've brought in some exciting talent to bring this melodic story to life!
These shows sell fast! Reserve Now.
