Community theater to perform ‘Shop of Horrors’ during April

A people-eating plant takes over a flower shop in “Little Shop of Horrors.” The musical will be performed by Grand Valley Community Theater during April.

The opening show at the newest live theater in downtown Grand Junction will be a funny one.

After months of preparation to move from its Redlands location to its downtown spot, the Performing Arts Center of the Grand Valley, 448 Main St., is ready to stage “Little Shop of Horrors” put on by Grand Valley Community Theatre.

Construction delays pushed back the opening date by a week, but center owner Terri Schafer and the stage now are ready for the opening of the musical comedy about a people-eating plant that takes over a flower shop in the 1950s.

“Little Shop of Horrors” includes popular songs such as “Suddenly, Seymour” and “Somewhere That’s Green.”

The shows will have two casts, one made up of area high school students and another cast with a mix of adults and students.

Tickets cost $17 for adults and $15 for students and seniors.

Group discounts are available by calling the theater box office at 361-0243.

Performances of “Little Shop of Horrors” will begin 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, April 7–9, April 14–16 and April 21–23.

A matinee will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 9.

The shows to be performed by students only will be April 14 and the April 9 matinee.
