Little Shop of Horrors @ Tyne Theatre & Opera House

Little Shop of Horrors DVD

Fact of the day: My favourite movie is Little Shop of Horrors. From having your heart captured by the loveable Rick Moranis, to being utterly creeped out by the dentist from hell, and not to mention a blood thirsty plant, this movie is truly a rollercoaster of nonsense, and I love it. So I was thrilled to be invited to the Tyne Theatre & Opera House to catch their performance of my favourite musical! I've never actually been to the Tyne Theatre before, to be honest, I wasn't even aware of the variety of shows that were held there until I saw the listing on 'What's on North East'.

The show kicked off at 7.30pm and already I was impressed by the beautiful voices of the girls of Skid Row. For a smaller venue, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the set and props. The set of Mr.Mushnik's shop was incredible, not to mention how well the various growth stages of Audrey ll were captured. Two characters that for me, really stood out with their performances were Seymour played by Richard Delroy, and Orin Scrivello played by Joshua Raven. Both managed to bring notable characteristics and mannersims that the originals had to the stage. The classic songs from both the broadway musical and movie were very enjoyable to watch with great choreography and some incredible voices. One of my favourite performances of the night was 'Somewhere that's Green' by Amy Chapman playing Audrey.

From start to finish I loved the whole show. Even when there were a few missed queues, or prop mishaps, the cast powered through in a professional manner. Tickets started at only £8 and to be honest, it's up there with some of the more pricey musicals I've seen.
