Manchester High School for Girls

LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS

The Music and Drama Departments performed the annual School play on 18th and 19th November.

Girls and staff started working on the ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ production since the beginning of the school year.

'Little Shop of Horrors’ is a comedy horror rock musical about a young man called Seymour who works in a flower shop in a rough area of New York. A mysterious total eclipse of the sun brings a strange plant on to the planet which has craving for blood and continues to grow and eat a lot of the characters.

Hannah from Year 11 said: “I played the part of Audrey, the girl Seymour falls in love with, and has to tragically be sacrificed to the plant at the end. The whole cast had an incredible time working on the production because it brought together girls of all ages. I have made a lot of new friends who are as passionate about the theatre as I am. On behalf of us all, I would like to thank the teachers who helped to make the play so successful and fun to perform - especially Mrs Haves and Mr Bradley for making the show possible and for inspiring us to take part with great enthusiasm.”

Mrs Haves said: “From sassy girls on the street played by Mia, Emily, Megan, Emily and Niamh, to the blossoming romance between Audrey and Seymour, the show really engaged all the family. It was a challenge to bring the man-eating Audrey II alive, but Elli, Grace, Georgia and Emma did that. Leah was hilarious as the scheming Mr Mushnik and Shazia was unforgettable as Orin the sadistic dentist. Finally, Hannah and Libby gave performances worthy of the professional stage in their roles of Audrey and Seymour.

She concluded: “The cast showed great commitment to the show. They have worked together as an ensemble, helping each other with line learning, choreography and harmonies. I am so proud of and pleased for each one of them.”
