In December 2019 our 2nd year Performing Arts students took part in Little Shop of Horrors, a musical where everything isn't as it seems.
'On the twenty-third day of the month of September, in an early year of a decade not too long before our own, the human race suddenly encountered a deadly threat to its very existence.'
Meek flower shop assistant Seymour pines for co-worker Audrey. During a total eclipse, he discovers an unusual plant he names Audrey II, which feeds only on human flesh and blood. The growing plant attracts a great deal of business for the previously struggling store but Seymour must come up with more bodies for the increasingly bloodthirsty plant in this classic musical.
