Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students and seniors.

Unsold tickets will be available at the door beginning 45 minutes prior to each performance.
Charming, funny and with tongue definitely planted in cheek, Little Shop of Horrors is one of the longest-running off-Broadway shows of all time. An affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies, it tells the story of a down-and-out skid row floral assistant who discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon the plant, Audrey II, grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who finally reveals herself to be an alien creature poised for global domination.
