Little Shop of Horrors

Directed by Magge Cabrera Hudgens | Music Direction by John Echols | Choreography by Jessica Laliberte-Bowman

July 12-August 4

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, “Little Shop of Horrors” has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. The meek floral assistant Seymour stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” after his co-worker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down-and-out Seymour as long as he keeps feeding it blood. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out-of-this-world origins and intent towards global domination. RATED PG-13

Love, Loss & What I Wore

Hit Staged Reading Returns to the Stage

Saturday, August 10 @ 8 p.m.

Back by popular demand! Five fabulous women—Alice Lupton Smith, Lakweshia Ewing, Becki Jordan, Alison Lebovitz, and Kristina Montague—return to the stage following the wild success of their March benefit performance. Back for one night only, the comic and sometimes touching staged reading explores how women’s relationships and attire—and at times the interaction of the two—use the female wardrobe as a time capsule of a woman’s life. The evening will include wine, hors d’oeuvres and dessert bites. Don’t miss it this time around! (Rated R for mature language and themes)
