Venue Cahn Auditorium

The Dolphin Show, America’s largest student-produced musical, is proud to present our 75th annual production. This year’s show is Alan Menkin's Little Shop of Horrors, produced by Bailey Sutton and Janie Dickerson, and directed by Maggie Monahan, opens January 20th in Northwestern’s Cahn Auditorium and runs until January 28th.


We are proud to present the 75th Annual Dolphin Show, Ashman and Menken’s cult classic Little Shop of Horrors. In a dreary world turned upside down by the arrival of an otherworldly sentient flytrap, the employees of a dilapidated florist’s shop sort through the morality of greed and plant nutrition. This acerbic sendup of both B horror movies and a pseudo-meritocratic class structure raises timely questions of self-determination and collective responsibility. Oh, and the plant sings. And eats people.
