A cast of more than 100 young performers took to the stage for a monstrous musical production of a comedy classic.
Pupils from Woodbridge School seized the spotlight at the Seckford Theatre for a lively presentation of Little Shop of Horrors.
Ordinarily performed by a small cast, the hit musical was adapted into a large-scale show by the school’s director of drama, Gemma Mayes. She said: “While the original only had a few principal parts we adapted it slightly to a larger number and where there were only three members of The Supremes, we expanded to 12.
“The pupils have been rehearsing hard since November and judging by the packed performances and the applause each time, all the hard work by everyone involved has paid off.”
Behind the scenes, other pupils carried out backstage duties and took care of lighting, with more joining staff to provide the music. Imagine Theatre Ltd supplied the Audrey II plants.
