It would be a horror to miss this

FANS of singing venus flytraps can now snap up tickets to this year's Willow Tree Theatre Company production.

Little Shop of Horrors is running at Tiverton's New Hall from December 3-8.

Set in a 1960s American florist shop, Steve Gage from Willow Tree said the show had "its tongue firmly in its cheek" and should be viewed as a "parody of sci-fi and B-movies" of the era.

Steve said there were plenty of catchy musical numbers within the play, incorporating elements of jazz, doo-wop and Motown in familiar tunes such as Skid Row and Somewhere That's Green.

They key parts are played by Dan Kilshaw as the human-devouring plant, with nerdy Seymour played by Malcolm Yeates and the object of his affections Audrey played by Vicki Roberts.

Tickets are available from the Box Office at Twyford Photography in Bampton Street, priced at £8 for adults and £6 for under-16s.

All evening performances get under way at 7:30pm, with a matinee on Saturday afternoon.
