Actors from the award-winning Keynsham Light Opera Group will be sharing the spotlight with a scene-stealing puppet during their next production.

A carnivorous alien plant will be taking centre stage as the theatre company presents comedy musical Little Shop of Horrors from Tuesday, April 26, to Saturday, April 30.

Based on the 1960s film, Seymour Krelborn, played by Mark Sellick, is store clerk at Mr Mushnick’s flower shop on Skid Row, where he discovers a plant that is out of this world, bringing him fame and fortune.

Named Audrey II, after Seymour’s crush and co-worker Audrey, played by Sophie Smith, the seedling soon grows into a monstrous plant poised for global domination.

Bath Puppet Workshop’s Marc Parrett, an actor and puppet maker, will be bringing Audrey to life for the show, which is directed by award-winning director Scott Rogers, working alongside musical director Lee Tesdale and choreographer Tracey English.

Little Shop of Horrors will be staged at Broadlands Academy at 7.30pm each night, with a 2.30pm matinee on the Saturday.

Tickets, at £12 or £8 for under-14s, are available from Tracey on 07580 259757 or email klogs@hotmail.co.uk. Concessions (senior citizens, people on benefits and under-16s) are available at £8 at the Tuesday evening and Saturday matinee performances. For groups of 10, one ticket will be free.
