The Tred Avon Players (TAP) has been presenting plays and musicals in the OCC for decades.

Seymour Krelborn is a meek, dejected assistant in a seedy flower shop on Skid Row who stumbles across a new breed of plant that he names “Audrey Two” after his co-worker crush. This R&B singing, carnivorous plant promises fame and fortune to the down-and-out Seymour, as long as he keeps feeding it…blood! As Audrey Two grows bigger and meaner, Seymour discovers the plant’s extraterrestrial origins and its intent of global domination…but has he discovered this too late?
