Little Shop of Horrors

 St Bartholomew’s School  will be performing the brilliant musical ‘Little Shop of Horrors’  4th-6th  December 7pm in the school hall.  Tickets are available; please call the school. ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ is a comedy, romance, horrorrock musical, by composer Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman.  Seymour Krelborn is a hapless florist assistant on Skid Row, who decides to boost sales by producing a strange house plant.  He names it AUDREY II because of his love of fellow worker Audrey.  Seymour raises a plant, soon realising it thrives of on human blood and subsequently human flesh!  Things rapidly get out of hand as the monster plant flourishes, so does business, but at what cost? 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 rolldoo-wop and early Motown, includes several well-known tunes, including the title song, “Skid Row (Downtown)”, “Somewhere That’s Green”, and “Suddenly, Seymour” as well as the title song “Little Shop of Horrors”.  The multi-talented cast have been rehearsing the show since July and it should prove to be a brilliant night’s entertainment.
