Join us this summer for a production unlike anything we have ever done before. In this campy musical based on the 1960s cult horror film, nerdy Seymour, a florist’s clerk, buys and nourishes a Venus fly trap-like plant, which he names for his beloved co-worker Audrey. Little does he know that his plant will develop a soulful R&B voice and an unquenchable thirst for human flesh. Featuring gospel, pop, and rock as only ArtsCentric can do, this reimagined immersive production is not one to be missed. Get your tickets early for this one. They are sure to be gone fast.
