Tickets for Banbridge Musical Society’s production of Little Shop of Horrors are now on sale and the cast and production team are putting the final touches to what promises to be a fantastic show.

Little Shop of Horrors runs at the IMC Theatre from March 28 – April 1 and tells the tale of an invasion of creatures from outer space, intent on world domination.

Some of them take the form of plants and Seymour, played by James Marsden, buys one and brings it back to Mushnik Florists on Skid Row where he works. He tends the plant lovingly, naming it Audrey II after his fellow assistant, Audrey, a role taken on by Lorraine Jackson-Brown.

Audrey II, voiced by Kyle Emerson, proves to be a draw in the shop which starts to attract many visitors. Just one small problem however - Audrey II’s food happens to be blood - fresh blood! And as the plant starts to grow, so does her appetite and demands.

We meet Audrey’s sadistic boyfriend, a dentist named Orin, played by Ruairi McAlinden, and Mushnik (Eddie Orr), as well as some local neighbourhood characters including street urchins Crystal, Chiffon and Ronette (Emma Kelly, Claire Costello and Lauren Hill). As Audrey II’s appetite grows, so does the list of her victims. Can Seymour, Audrey and Mushnik evade her evil jaws?

The musical is based on the basic concept and dark comic tone of the original 1960 film, although it changes much of the story.

The team which produced Banbridge Musical Society’s sell-out November show Annie the Musical is back, with Ian Milford once again directing, Niall O’Flaherty returning as Musical Director and local dance teacher Lynn Gourley choreographing.

Little Shop of Horrors features fabulous songs, dancing and special effects.

Please note that the show is not recommended for children under the age of 10.

Little Shop of Horrors will run in the IMC Theatre in Banbridge from March 28-April 1.
