Little Shop of Horrors
Ferndale Repertory Theatre / 8 p.m. / $18 / $16 students/seniors
“Poor Seymour Krelborn. If you looked up “hapless” in the dictionary, you’d find his picture. He just can’t let go of his workplace crush, even though she already has a boyfriend. But, hey, things are looking up: Seymour just discovered a new breed of venus flytrap. That feeds on blood. And bodies.”
