Central High School presents “Little Shop of Horrors” tonight at 7:00 p.m. before they take their show on the road to the 32nd annual Theatre Fest (“the oldest non-competitive high school theatre festival in the world”).

“Little Shop” is a musical black comedy that tells the story of Seymour, a nerdy florist’s assistant, and his quest to satiate a bloodthirsty man-eating alien plant while also winning the heart of the girl of his dreams. Admission is by donation only, although the cast promises that whoever gives $20 or more gets to sit onstage during the show — just out of range, we hope, of Audrey II.

Central High School is located at 610 W University Ave., Champaign.
