According to information from CCCEPA:

A doo-wop spoof of 1950s sci-fi disaster movies, "Little Shop of Horrors" follows the misadventures of Seymour, a down-and-out floral assistant who longs to get the girl of his dreams and escape life on skid row. He becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon, "Audrey II" grows into an ill-tempered, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination.

Laced with dark humor and irresistible music, "Little Shop of Horrors" is one of the longest-running off-Broadway shows of all time.

The musical will be staged Friday, Mar. 22 at 8 p.m.; Saturday, Mar. 23 at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.; and Sunday, Mar. 24 at 3 p.m. All shows are at the Earl Smith Strand Theatre.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at earlsmithstrand.org or by calling 770-293-0080. The Strand Theatre is located at 117 North Park Square on the historic Marietta Square.

The CCCEPA is a fine arts magnet program at Pebblebrook High School in south Cobb County.
