With its brassy, immortal score, this oddball romantic comedy is considered by many to be the perfect musical. Will Nathan Detroit find a location for the secret craps game? Will Adelaide finally get a wedding after her fourteen-year engagement? Will what happened in Havana, stay in Havana? This fun, new production, filled with exciting choreography, is the perfect outing for family and friends during the holiday season.
“An artistic triumph. The perfect musical comedy.”

There’s a new breed of plant in town — foul-mouthed… R&B-singing… carnivorous. And if Seymour doesn’t stop “Audrey II”, it just might take over the world! Don’t miss a fresh, new vision of this ridiculous, beloved musical, from the Associate Choreographer of Broadway’s Hamilton. You’ll laugh. You’ll scream. You’ll give up gardening for good.
