ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Tickets are on sale now for the U.S. Naval Academy’s musical production of “Little Shop of Horrors.” Performances will be held Feb. 22, 23 and 24, and March 1, 2, and 3 in Mahan Hall.  

Performances are at 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets for the musical are $19 and can be purchased at the door, online at or by calling the Naval Academy’s Music and Theatre Box Office at 410-293-TIXS (8497).

The annual USNA Winter Musical is under the direction of Brian Hissong, musical direction of Monte Maxwell, and production of Dr. Aaron Smith.

“Little Shop of Horrors” is written by legendary composer Alan Menken, in the style of ‘60s rock, doo-wop, and Motown. The plot follows floral shop worker Seymour, played by Midshipman First Class Colin Gallacher, who would do or give anything to gain the love of his co-worker Audrey, played by Third Class Mackenzie Hirth, along with a large cast of talented midshipmen.  The extent of Seymour's desire is tested when a strange and menacing addition to his floral shop brings him sudden and unexpected fame.

Drivers without a Department of Defense I.D. are not permitted on the Naval Academy grounds. Audience members may walk-on through Gate 3 on Maryland Avenue from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. for pedestrian traffic during performance nights. All visitors 18 and older are required to show a valid photo identification to enter the grounds. Cars with handicapped license plates or dashboard cards must be issued a pass from Pass and ID at Gate 1 during normal business hours. After business hours, a pass may be issued by the shift lieutenant at Gate 8.  All bags are subject to search.
