Performing Arts Students Prepare for Musical
Performing Arts students visited the Bradford Playhouse last week to see the groundbreaking musical Little Shop of Horrors.
Giles Atkinson, Performing Arts Tutor says: “Fuelled by Faust and fertiliser, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS is a charming, kooky and hilarious 1950s musical sci-fi spoof. With a book and lyrics by Howard Ashman, music by Alan Menken and based on the film by Roger Corman with a screenplay by Charles Griffith, it is one of the longest-running off-Broadway shows of all time.
The action centres on down and out florist’s assistant Seymour who becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a macabre craving. He is secretly in love with his colleague, Audrey and names the plant Audrey Two in her honour.
Audrey Two has plans that are far greater than Seymour can imagine as it grows into a bad-tempered, foul-mouthed carnivore who offers fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite.”
Little Shop of Horrors will also be performed by the Performing Arts students at the Mart Theatre in Skipton on the 07 and 08 February 2020.
