June comes to a spectacular and fun-filled close with Little Shop of Horrors with curtain times at 7:30 p.m. June 25 – 28 and 2:00 p.m. June 28 and 29. A down-and out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood.
