GWU Theatre Stages Production Feb. 23-26

“Scary but fun” — that’s how director Dr. Chris Nelson describes “Little Shop of Horrors,” a musical the Gardner-Webb School of Performing and Visual Arts will present on Feb. 23-26.

The comedy follows a florist shop employee who raises a plant in hopes of winning the girl of his dreams, but his plan backfires when the plant becomes a carnivorous monster.

Gardner-Webb’s theatre and music departments are partnering to stage the production in Dover Theatre inside the Lutz-Yelton Convocation Center on campus. Shows are Feb. 23-25 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 26 at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets for “Little Shop of Horrors” are available now. Prices are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and students, $5 for GWU faculty and staff, and free for GWU students. This show is not recommended for children.
