Thursday - Sunday, March 13 - 16, 8:00 p.m. Once upon a time, there was a young orphan named Seymour who worked for the fatherly Mr. Mushnik in a flower shop on Skid Row. But business was slow… until Seymour acquired a small Venus flytrap-like plant for the shop. He named it Audrey II in honor of another Audrey, his beloved, beautiful co-worker. As Seymour learns how to properly feed and nurture his plant, Audrey II undergoes a series of remarkable growth spurts. Business in the shop booms as Audrey II becomes an irresistible attraction. What happens next in this musical botanical love story will reach out and grab you until you are totally consumed. Book and lyrics by Howard Ashman with music by Alan Menken.

Reception - Drawings by Ben Perini: Random Thoughts and the Fictional Portrait Feb 21, 2014 from 06:00 PM to 08:00 PM Mary Davis Holt Gallery, Elberson Fine Arts Center,
Exhibition dates: February 17 -–March 21 This solo exhibit of fictional portraits consists of large-scale charcoal drawings on paper. The drawings celebrate the simplicity of black charcoal and the beauty of charcoal markings as they are layered, blended, rubbed, brushed, erased and further manipulated by the imagination to portray expressions and thoughts. Scale is an important factor in Perini’s work, with some drawings in this show measuring up to seven feet tall. The intent is for the viewer to be absorbed and engulfed by the whole work of art, as he or she decides if the layers of imagery are part of a story or just abstract musings. An artist all of his life, Perini was born in Brooklyn, New York, and grew up among the great museums of the city, which he visited often from an early age. His first educational art experience was at age eight, attending the Saturday art classes at the Brooklyn Museum. Inspired onward, he never looked back. He is currently a professional illustrator.
