Little Shop of Horrors: post-show update (3)

For those who didn’t see the production, the largest plant was pretty impressive. Here’s a short clip of the production, during which you can see the plant in action. The sound quality isn’t perfect and it’s a little shaky, but you can get the general picture:

Little Shop of Horrors: post show update (2)

The plant puppets used in our production of Little Shop of Horrors were truly impressive and grew from a simple hand puppet to a massive monster that needed two students to manage it. The puppets were operated by students, but were constructed by Nicky Cases, one of our Art teachers.

Ms Cases has written two blog posts about the process of building the puppets (and the set, which she also created). You can read these posts on her website, here and here.

Little Shop of Horrors: post-show update (1)

It’s been over a week since the end of Little Shop of Horrors, which was a resounding success. Over the next few days we’ll try to get some photos, audience reactions, etc. uploaded, but in the meantime you can read a review of the show here.

You can read the programme from the production here.

A Year 8 student, Daniel Koo, put together this montage of photos from the dress rehearsal – obviously quite a few things changed before the final performance, including the addition of make-up and the completion of the biggest plant, but it gives you a real sense of how the show looked on stage:

(The soundtrack of this video is a medley that Daniel found and doesn’t involve our students’ singing.)

Last night!

There’s been a real buzz around the school for the past two days about this production – the responses from the audience so far have been excellent, and we had a sell-out show last night. We’re expecting tonight to sell out, too!

It’s always sad getting to the final performance of a show: the cast have formed incredible bonds with each other and there’s a real sense of ensemble. As of tomorrow, however, that ensemble will cease to exist…

First night!
