Little Shop of Horrors
24 March 2014
A really spectacular show - the Senior House Musical Production of 'Little Shop of Horrors' was performed on 19,20 and 21 March to a full house each night.
Little Shop of Horrors is a comedy horror rock musical, by composer Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman, about a hapless florist shop worker who raises a plant that feeds on human blood and flesh. The musical is based on the low-budget 1960 black comedy film The Little Shop of Horrors, directed by Roger Corman. The music, composed by Menken in the style of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown, includes several well-known tunes, including the title song, "Skid Row (Downtown)", "Somewhere That's Green", and "Suddenly, Seymour". Directed and produced by Mrs Emma Forster and Mr Graeme Wilson, there were some fantastic performances. The lead roles were played by Lucy Hatton as Seymour, Emily Keeton as Mushnik, Jessica Coventry as Audrey, Lucy Blair as Orin Scrivello the mean dentist, and Verity Hodgson-Bajoria as the voice of the man eating plant. Olivia Saint, Lucy Hall and Ellie McNaught were outstanding in their roles as Crystal, Chifon and Ronette. A huge thank you to all the cast and staff who worked so hard behind the scenes. It really was a fantastic production. Look out for the photo album on our Facebook page.
