CP Theatre presents Little Shop of Horrors

Presents

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little MermaidBeauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world. The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, 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! One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows, Little Shop Of Horrors the charmingly tongue in cheek comedy has been produced worldwide to incredible success and will be a great addition to the Halloween season this year.

Get your tickets at the door, by calling the SunTrust box office 704-330-6534 or online at tix.cpcc.edu. CP Student in FREE with valid ID! FAculty and Staff $10.00. FREE Parking!

CP Theatre Presents Shakespeare In Love

September 27 – October 6   Halton Theater

Shakespeare in Love is a play by Lee Hall adapted from the Tom Stoppard film of the same title that won the Oscar in 1998. Young Will Shakespeare has writer’s block… the deadline for his new play is fast approaching but he’s in desperate need of inspiration. That is, until he finds his muse – Viola. This beautiful young woman is Will’s greatest admirer and will stop at nothing (including breaking the law) to appear in his next play.
Against a bustling background of mistaken identity, ruthless scheming and backstage theatrics, Will’s love for Viola quickly blossoms and inspires him to write his greatest masterpiece.5 STARS! “Funny, often genuinely moving, and generates a glow you could warm your hands by….” – Daily Telegraph,
