Little Shop of Horrors comes to RSC

The students at Roma State College are getting ready for the premiere of their musical Little Shop of Horrors tonight.
The students at Roma State College are getting ready for the premiere of their musical Little Shop of Horrors tonight.

WITH a homicidal plant, a poor florist and plenty of rock and roll, the Roma State College musical is not to be missed.

The 30 students in the musical are looking forward to putting their costumes on for the premiere tonight.

Drama teacher and production co-ordinator Melissa Handley said tables and chairs will be set up for the performance and guests are encouraged to bring their own dinner.

"There will be a canteen open on the night but it will only be selling snacks and soft drinks," Ms Handley said.

The Little Shop of Horrors tells the story of florist Seymour who is in love with his co-worker Audrey.

When a mysterious plant appears in the store, Seymour names it Audrey II in her honour. But the blood-sucking plant soon proves to be more trouble than it's worth.

Ms Handley said the students are very excited about the show.

"The show is really looking good," she said.

Little Shop of Horrors is on tonight and tomorrow from 7pm at the Jubilee Hall at the RSC Senior Campus.

Tickets cost $12 for adults and $10 for students.
