"Little Shop of Horrors"
Sept. 29 through Oct. 16

The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" -- after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down-and-out Krelborn 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!
