Audience Wooed by Little Shop of Horrors

Audience Wooed by Little Shop of Horrors

10 April 2024

Over three nights in March, a cast of Senior School pupils from Bolton School Boys’ and Girls’ Divisions delivered a stunning performance of Alan Menken and Howard Ashman’s Little Shop of Horrors.

Rehearsing over a period of six months, including five Sundays, the cast perfected their interpretation of this innovative take on the Faust legend. Miss Talbot, Director of Theatre Studies in the Girls’ Division, said: ‘The cast has been inquisitive – “does Seymour buy a new coat or does he take the dentist’s?” – and endlessly imaginative; “on my way back to Skid Row, I rat on my mate who cheated at poker”. They have taken risks and problem solved, building character at every turn. None of this would have been possible without the support of highly talented and committed professionals. We would like to thank all who played in the band. We were grateful to Mark Beaumont from North West Theatre Arts Company for lending and installing the set and puppets. We were indebted to two wonderful technicians Mr Kyle and Mr Deakin. Little Shop of Horrors will be Mr Kyle’s last senior production at Bolton School. We will miss him very much.’
