IF YOU dare go out in the dark then head for Marsden next week and a musical packed with fun and yes, a giant, flesh-eating plant.
Marsden Church Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Society hits the stage on Tuesday with a new production of Little Shop Of Horrors (October 27).
Performances run nightly at 7.30pm at the Parochial Hall until Saturday.
Dawn Leigh, who has choreographed Marsden’s last few musicals, not only keeps the cast on their toes as the show’s choreographer but as its producer too.
And if that joint role were not enough, Dawn’s also on stage, playing the part of Chiffon one of the Ronnettes who act as narrators throughout the show.
Joining her in the Ronnettes are Rachel Clegg, who will be well known thanks to her popular cabaret appearances, plus Marsden regulars, Charlotte Westwood and Claire Fielding.
The show’s musical director is Natalie Davies, a first for her at Marsden though she was involved in the revue that the company staged last year.
Andrew Lockwood returns to the company after an absence of five or six years to take the show’s leading role of Seymour.
The cast includes a number of faces familiar to Marsden audiences including Hayley Taylor who plays Seymour’s girlfriend, Audrey and Rob Pogson who plays the sadistic dentist, Orin.
For once neither seen or heard is Marsden regular Chris Comber who will be inside the plant.
New to Marsden this year are Andrew Sloman and Richard Wayman whose job it is to give that plant a voice.
Tickets are £8 available from Duncan’s Hairdressers, Warehouse Hill, Marsden. Telephone 01484 845311 (shop hours).
