April 17 - May 19
When shy, awkward Seymour Krelborn finds a strange and interesting new plant that sings wicked R&B, he suddenly sees an unexpected road to fame, fortune, and the heart of his true love—as long as he's willing to pay a horrible price. This silly, scary sci-fi musical romp has devoured the hearts of audiences around the world—and now it's coming for you! You'll laugh. You'll scream. You'll give up gardening for good!

IRT Theatre Camp

Bring theatre to life at the IRT! Children new to theatre can learn the basics in the introductory camps, while more advanced actors can sharpen their skills at our intermediate camps. We offer classes in musical theatre, improvisation, technical theatre, and fight and movement choreography. Registration is now open for Summer 2024!

"I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing at least 20 different shows at the IRT. From hilarious farce comedies that bring laughter for days to heavy and poignant dramatic episodes that make you ponder… each and every performance is memorable in its own way."
