Tuesday 6th November saw a dozen members at Louth Riverhead Theatre, to sit through an evening in the Little Shop of Horrors .. the story of a Skid Row florist’s shop where a new cross breed of plant becomes a source of fortune for the owner, Mr Mushnik. But at what a price! It grew and it grew and it wanted BLOOD! Eventually the stream of victims caused the distraught florist’s assistant to accept the fact that he had no future in flowers, except as a victim of his voracious offspring.
Well acted by Louth Playgoers, and with a live orchestra and all the performers singing as well as speaking, it was a great evening’s entertainment, and we were glad to escape from not just the theatre, but also the bloody maw of the dreaded plant. Ugh ..!
Future shows at this lovely theatre, and for which we have tickets on hold, are as shown in the Visits Programme for 2019:
February 13 Alfie (by Bill Naughton)
March 13 Diary of Anne Frank (adapted from the famous book)
