Little Shop of Horrors
Local students from St Augustine's Priory performed at The Questors Theatre
‘Little Shop of Horrors’, perfomed by St Augustine’s Priory, Catholic independent girls’ school has been received with critical acclaim.
For three nights from 9th – 11th March the Questors Theatre, Ealing was taken over by man-eating plants and dazzling performances all round.
The monochrome set and costumes, spectacular singing and the homemade Audrey II man-eating plants tied together what's been described as 'a moving and hilarious production'.
In cross-curricular cooperation, the carnivorous plants cared for by the St Augustine’s Priory Science Department journeyed down to the Questors Theatre in their terrarium and planted themselves in the foyer, waiting patiently for unsuspecting prey.
One audience member commented on the growth of the Audrey II plant using Junior girls as puppeteers, saying it was “a stroke of genius”, while alumnae who attended were awed at the confidence and professionalism of the actors.
All the girls involved in the production, whether working backstage or acting on stage were praised for delivering a marvellous theatrical spectacular.
