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.
