Reservations recommended; tickets $10

Monday Mar 16, 2015

Theatre Northwest, the performance company of the Indiana University Northwest Department of Performing Arts, is proud to announce its spring musical production, “Little Shop of Horrors,” a comedy rock musical, by composer Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman.

The show is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on April 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18 and 2:30 p.m., Sunday, April 12 at Theatre Northwest on Grant, 3660 Grant St., located one mile west of the main campus at 37th Avenue and Grant Street.

Directed by Assistant Professor Mark Baer, the production will feature performances by IU Northwest students Cartrese Abrons, Taila Anderson, James Burch, Jacob Cherry, Raven Colón, Brandon Hearne, Amanda Tomczak and Josh Kime as well as community guests Aaron Duncil, Kelly Horton and Grant Fitch. Students Chris Wisner and Maegan Glass will provide production support.

The show will feature a scenic design by Associate Professor Katherine Arfken, vocal direction by Visiting Scholar Mark Spencer, technical direction by Tim O’Donnell and choreography by Adjunct Professor Megan Lindsay, as well as costume and lighting designs by professional guest artists Stephanie Naumoff, and Guy Rhodes, respectively.

In “Little Shop of Horrors,” the meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" - after his crush on his co-worker, Audrey.  This R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down-and-out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out-of-this-world origins and intent towards global domination.

General admission tickets are $10. Cash only will be accepted at the door.  Reservations are highly recommended, as performances will sell out.  Reserve your seats online at or by calling (219) 980-6808.
