VENTURE into the wacky world of quirky horror with the cast of Mazenod College in a rock musical comedy guaranteed to deliver a fun-packed family night out.
The Little Shop of Horrors opens at the Lesmurdie school on July 15 with evening and matinee performances until Saturday, July 22.
Do not be fooled by the enormity of the task for a humble school production because Mazenod unearths a secret talent in the guise of ‘a passionate genius tucked away in the art department’.
Never one to shirk a challenge, the school’s Head of Performing Arts Nick Allen took up the gauntlet and discovered a newfound talent for puppet creation and animatronics.
Flesh-eating Audrey II comes to life so convincingly that it is impossible not to believe plants are capable of taking over the world.
The story unfolds with a love-struck florist unable to divulge his true feelings to the light of his life and when he stumbles across an unidentifiable plant amid the blossoms, he unwittingly unleashes a monster.
For those who have seen the popular 80s reboot of the film of the same name, Audrey II’s inkling for blood allows her to grow beyond the florist’s wildest expectations.
