Sponsored Pick: Little Shop of Horrors
Retire Netflix for an evening and try a fun night out at the theatre instead! Citadel Theatre’s Little Shop of Horrors is the perfect blend of comedy, music, and just a hint of fall-appropriate spookiness. This sci-fi musical comedy tells the story of a meek floral shop assistant who stumbles across a strange new plant that causes business to boom. But this plant has a sinister edge, and when it starts to promise fame and fortune, it also develops a vampiric thirst for human blood! This story is one of the theatre company’s longest-running Off-Broadway shows and is set to an upbeat 60s-inspired pop/rock score for a fun night out streaming services can’t beat.
When: Showtimes between Saturday, October 21 to Sunday, November 19th, 2023
