The stage is set for curtain-up on Highfields’ latest stage spectacular, Little Shop of Horrors.
The school’s Lyceum has been transformed with stunning scenery - including a show-stopping mechanical Venus Flytrap - ready to wow audiences from Thursday (Feb 28th) to Saturday (March 2nd).
Talented teenagers from Years 10-13 have spent months rehearsing for curtain-up on the high energy musical comedy, which follows the story of a florist shop worker who discovers his Venus Flytrap can talk.
Tickets have been selling fast for the show, which Highfields’ Head of Extra Curricular Performance, Ms S Bishop, said is going to be one of the school’s best yet.
She added: “Our musical productions have gained a fantastic reputation for their quality, and our latest spectacular promises to be another knockout.
“Little Shop of Horrors is a fantastic musical and one that I have personally wanted to stage at the school for a number of years. The entire cast and crew is delighted that we’re now on the final countdown to showtime.
“Our students have put in an extraordinary amount of effort in rehearsals over many months, and their hard work has paid off with another fantastic show, which they can’t wait to perform to live audiences.
“We have different casts performing each night to showcase the incredible wealth of talent we have here at Highfields and we would love as many people there as possible supporting them.
“Tickets have been selling really well but there are still some available, so it would be great to see everyone there cheering on our incredibly talented young performers.”
Little Shop of Horrors is the second musical production to be staged by Highfields in the 2018/19 academic year. The hugely successful Wizard of Oz was staged from November 7th-10th and featured students from Years 7 to 9.
Tickets for Little Shop Of Horrors are available from the top floor LRC, costing £6 (£4 concessions). Shows start at 7.30pm.
