Little Shop of Horrors Opens at Chafford Hundred
By Lucy Chipperfield
Once again the members of the Expressive Arts Department at Chafford Hundred Campus produced another exceptional production in the form of the surreal sci-fi play, ‘Little Shop of Horrors’
Based on Charles Griffith’s screenplay, the narrative followed the nerdish florist Seymour on his pursuit to win the heart of Audrey and become an incredibly successful businessman. However, the way Seymour tries to woo Audrey and gain success is with the help of a man-eating plant, called Audrey 2.
Without any hesitation, ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ is an incredibly difficult play to attempt. In order, to do justice to the outrageous narrative, the actors need to provide outstanding performances to ensure the quirky script is brought to life. Having said that, the performances that were showcased on stage at Chafford Hundred Campus did just that. Not only were they outstanding, but they truly illustrated what talented students attend Chafford Hundred Campus.
It was obvious that an incredible amount of work, effort and commitment had been fed into this extravagant production, and it certainly paid off! The performances that the young talented actors created were all engaging and entertaining from beginning to end. Plus, the clever creation of the man-eating plant (Audrey 2) was very entertaining and brilliantly brought to life.
On that note, I would like to congratulate everyone involved in Chafford Hundred Campus’ ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ production. It was a truly enjoyable evening and I suspect that there will be many more successful performances and productions in the very near future!
