An Ealing school has staged Little Shop of Horrors as its annual production.
The production was put on by St Augustine’s Priory, a Catholic independent girls’ school in Ealing.
For three nights from 9th – 11th March the Questors Theatre, Ealing was taken over by man-eating plants and dazzling performances all round.
The monochrome set and costumes, spectacular singing and the homemade Audrey II man-eating plants tied together a moving and hilarious production.
In cross-curricular cooperation, the carnivorous plants cared for by the St Augustine’s Priory Science Department journeyed down to the Questors Theatre in their terrarium and planted themselves in the foyer, waiting patiently for unsuspecting prey.
One audience member commented on the growth of the Audrey II plant using Junior girls as puppeteers, saying it was a stroke of genius, while alumnae who attended were awed at the confidence and professionalism of the actors.
The school's next Open Day is on October 7 from 10am to 12pm for Nursery through to Sixth Form places.
