Dublin City University’s student production of Little Shop of Horrors celebrates 21 years of musical theatre and premieres on Thursday 19th April. Little Shop of Horrors will run from Thursday 19th April to Saturday 21st April in The Helix Theater Dublin. Tickets are available now from The Helix box office or online at The Helix website. Tickets are €10 for students & €15 for adults.
All profits from the show will be donated to the Bee For Battens charity – raising awareness for and supporting those affected by Battens disease. Looking forward to the event, “Tony Heffernon of Bees for Battens said “DCU Drama have been hugely generous with their talents over the past year. Being part of Little Shop of Horrors means heightening awareness of Battens disease among parents who want to know, on a practical level, how they can best help their child if diagnosed”.
Little Shop of Horrors revolves around a florist, a social pariah who finds fame and romance through the help of a giant, man-eating plant that demands to be fed in exchange. Little Shop of Horrors is based on the 1960 classic comedy film The Little Shop of Horrors, about this bloodthirsty plant Audrey II. The musical debuted in 1982 and spawned a 1986 film adaptation.
DCU’s show is directed by AIMS winners Emma Jane Reilly and accredited musical director Kevin Walshe. The Little Shop of Horror’s full-student cast is made up of members of the DCU Drama Society. Chairperson of DCU Drama Emma Wall said, “We are so excited about this year’s production. DCU Drama produced Little Shop in 2004 with minimal resources which motivated us to make this year’s show a high-end production, suitable for all ages and a contender for the AIMS annual Musical Theatre awards”.
