The Ice House is on the corner of Independence and Mercer streets in downtown Berkeley Springs.

The story takes place on New York's Skid Row in the 1950s. Patrick Arwood Slate plays Seymour, who collects weird and interesting plants, including one with a taste for blood. A show-stealing trio of street urchins sung in girl-group style by Mary Hott, Angela Petry and Beth Brooks are musical guides to the play.
