It has been a busy time of year for youngsters from The Youth Theatre in Market Harborough as they get ready to perform two shows.

The first of these will be the science fiction classic musical Little Shop of Horrors which runs for five performances between Friday May 26 to Sunday May 28.

The second is the Magic of The Movies and Musicals running from Friday June 2 to Saturday June 3.

Both of the shows take place at Welland Park Academy in Market Harborough.

Little Shop of Horrors was first adapted as a stage musical in the 1980s from a Roger Corman 60s film.

It tells the story of Seymour, a bumbling gardener working as a florist down on Skid Row who pines for co-worker Audrey.

But his down and out life is soon transformed when he discovers an unusual plant after a total eclipse of the sun.

Naming it Audrey II after the love of his life, everything appears to be coming up roses for Seymour. But the plant soon starts struggling for life and demands a very different kind of plant life to keep things blooming.

Tickets for this show cost £10 for adults, £8 for OAPs and £7 for children under the age of 18. There is a family ticket available for £28 which gives you four tickets.

Performances of Little Shop of Horrors are at 7.30pm on Friday May 26, then 2pm and 6pm on Saturday May 27 followed by 1pm and 4.30pm on Sunday May 28.

The Magic of the Movies and Musicals will involve the younger members of the group.

It is a compilation show featuring songs and dances from some of the most well known movies and musicals in the West End.
