STEP right up to the Thameside Theatre next week and see the fabulous Audrey II, the worlds strangest and most interesting unidentified plant…….
Thurrock based Am Dram group Thurrock Thameside Musical Society (TTMS) are staging 4 performances of the brilliant comedy musical Little Shop of Horrors at the Thameside Theatre between the 4th and 6th of July. This lively show was made famous in the 1980’s by the film of the same name which starred Rick Moranis and Steve Martin. TTMS don’t have them, but they do have an amazing line up of Thurrock talent who have been rehearsing hard to bring this fun and challenging musical production to life.
Director Hilary Martin says “This show has presented some considerable challenges – not least the fact that one of the main characters is a blood-thirsty plant. Technically this show is hard because the cast have not had the chance to work with the actual plant until this week. Audrey II, at its biggest is operated by 3 puppeteers who are hidden away inside the plant and bring it to full life throughout Act II.”
Scott Dean, who plays the voice of Audrey II is no stranger to the Thameside stage says that he has “always dreamed of not being on stage…and this show has given him the chance to do exactly that.” Scott will be performing back-stage, completely unseen by the audience!
Little Shop of Horrors is a really fun, all singing, all dancing show and one really not to be missed. Loved by audiences worldwide, it’s even caught the attention of famous Thurrock stars Russell Brand and Joe Pasquale who have recently tweeted about this production.
