Central Theatre Arts Academy (CTAA) presents Little Shop of Horrors Friday through April 19 at Mililani High School, featuring a cast of students from Central District schools and beyond.

The curtain goes up on the performing arts learning center’s spring musical at 7 p.m. April 10, 17 and 18 and at 4 p.m. April 12 and 19 in the school cafeteria. Tickets cost $12, $10 and $5, and are available online at showtix4u.com. For more information, call director and program coordinator Julia LoPresti at 627-4356.

LoPresti, the Central District’s 2010 Teacher of the Year, began her drama position at CTAA last fall following several years of similar work at her alma mater, Aiea Intermediate.

CTAA mounts two major productions each year with a mandate to educate students to think critically about the creative and artistic processes of theater and its literature via performance, design, construction ant technical applications.
