Rave reviews for Little Shop of Horrors


Talented students wowed audiences with performances of Highfields’ latest stage spectacular, Little Shop of Horrors - with attentions already now turning to the next musical production.

The school’s Lyceum was transformed with stunning scenery - including a show-stopping mechanical Venus Flytrap - for three sell-out performances of the high octane musical comedy.

Students from Years 10-13 spent months rehearsing for the show, which follows the story of a florist shop worker who discovers his Venus Flytrap can talk, and their performances have received rave reviews.

Highfields’ Head of Extra Curricular Performance, Ms S Bishop, said: “Our musical productions have gained a fantastic reputation for their quality, and Little Shop of Horrors was one of our best yet.

“We had different casts performing each night to showcase the incredible wealth of talent we have here at Highfields, and every student involved was fantastic.

“They put in an extraordinary amount of effort in rehearsals over many months, and their hard work most definitely paid off. The feedback has been incredible, and all of the students involved should be very proud.”

Attentions are now turning to the next musical production, which is set to be staged in November.

Auditions for the show, which is yet to be confirmed, are likely to take place after the Easter holidays, with rehearsals set to get under way during the summer holidays. The next show will once again feature students from Years 10-13, with a separate musical production featuring students from Years 7-9 scheduled to be staged in February next year.
