For this year’s senior school production, the Drama and Music departments performed the comedy/horror rock musical, Little Shop of Horrors.
Performances of the show began last week with a cast of 18 girls and boys from CLSG and CLS. Amongst the many entertaining aspects of the play, the acting, set and technical details really stood out most. These were combined with decorative costumes and an ever-growing man-eating plant helping to make the production a huge success.
The acting was excellent, while the lighting and sound were some of the best design elements the school has ever produced. The light always spotlighted the important character, which helped the audience to see their facial and body language more clearly. The show was continuously enhanced by the little details, whether it was the strip lights throwing colour light down or strobe lighting used to show lightning. The musical accompaniment, provided by the Music department, was very effective.
Little Shop of Horrors was truly a triumph in which everyone involved dedicated a lot of time and hard work. It is fair to say that it was a very engaging and well-performed production that many of us would be very happy to see again.
