‘DON’T feed the plants’ was the resounding message for Coventry audiences were in for a surprise as they were transported in Grace Academy’s latest production of ‘Little Shop of Horrors’.

The cast of thirty students brought the popular musical comedy to life – transporting audiences Downtown to Somewhere that’s Green with song and dance routines, and three giant plant puppets.

Based on the film of the same name starring Ellen Greene and Steve Martin, the musical tells the story of a deprived florist who unwittingly raises man-eating plant, Audrey II, in a bit to impress the girl of his dreams – ironically called Audrey.

Lyndsey Hall, Head of Drama at Grace Academy Coventry said the students ‘completely smashed’ all three nights of the show.

She added: “They had a fantastic energy that saw people returning for more every night.

“It was great to hear feedback about the quality and professionalism of the show, demonstrating how focussed and dedicated our students are.

“They have done themselves and the Academy proud.”
