A NORTHWICH school is delighted to welcome back the community to enjoy one of its acclaimed theatrical performances.

The pandemic put a halt to the public being able to attend the renowned productions of The Grange School in Hartford.

However, the school is thrilled to announce tickets are now on sale for its latest production – Little Shop of Horrors.

The show promises to have audiences laughing, singing and dancing in the aisles at the wonderful Grange Theatre later this month.

Little Shop of Horrors is a dark comedy rock musical and the story follows a hapless florist shop worker who raises a plant that feeds on human blood and flesh.

With music by Alan Menken and lyrics and a book by Howard Ashman, the musical is loosely based on the low-budget 1960 black comedy film The Little Shop of Horrors.

The music – in the style of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown, includes several well-known tunes, including the title song, Skid Row (Downtown), Somewhere That's Green, and Suddenly, Seymour.

Head of drama and the director of the show, Jacqueline Hardy-Kinsella, said: "We are so incredibly proud of the standard of this production, which is in no small part down to the commitment and talent of our amazing cast and crew.

"The show promises to be a fantastically fun and thoroughly entertaining evening for our audiences."

Little Shop will run between March 23-26 at the Grange Theatre on Bradburns Lane, with refreshments provided by Ice Cream Creations.

There will be a matinee performance on Saturday, March 26, and the show is rated as a 12A (Under 12s are to be accompanied by an adult, parental guidance).

Tickets are on sale now at thegrangetheatre.com/littleshop or by calling 01606 539039.
