Marquette University’s Theatre Arts program heads down to skid row for an out-of-this-world musical experience. Little Shop of Horrors follows Seymour, a lowly employee at a flower shop, and his discovery of a strange plant that brings him instant fame and overnight success. However, the cost of fame proves too expensive when Seymour discovers that his botanical meal ticket craves something other than water. This charming and affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies will run:
• Thursday, Sept. 29, through Saturday, Oct. 1, 7:30 p.m.
• Saturday, Oct. 1, special family performance, 1 p.m.
• Sunday, Oct. 2, 2:30 p.m.
• Wednesday, Oct. 5, through Saturday, Oct. 8, 7:30 p.m.
• Sunday, Oct. 9, 2:30 p.m.
Ticket prices for the general public range from $16 to $20. Discounts are offered to senior citizens, Marquette students, employees and alumni. Tickets can be purchased by contacting the theatre box office at (414) 288-7505 or online at www.theatretickets.marquette.edu.
