MUSICAL SOCIETY’S ‘LITTLE SHOP’ TO BRING COMEDY AND MUSIC TO AN GRIANAN

first_imgSome of the cast going through their paces.A feast of music, dancing and comedy is in store at An Grianán Theatre from February 17-21 when Letterkenny Musical Society follow up their recent stunning performances of Annie, Oliver, Calamity Jane and Guys and Dolls with a spectacular production of the comedy musical ‘Little Shop of Horrors.’Although it features as one of its stars a man-eating plant, ‘Little Shop’ is far from the horror its title might suggest.Instead, with music from the same writing team who gave us Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and The Little Mermaid, it is a fun-filled comedy packed with terrific music and colourful characters. Famed for their amazing shows, Letterkenny Musical Society (LMS) have again pulled out all the stops with this year’s show and once more they have found fresh and exciting new talent to add to their experienced group of versatile performers.Auditions for the various roles began back in September and since then, the entire cast has been working on the forthcoming production that’s certain to be another show stopping success.Emile Rainey who plays the sadistic dentist Orin Scrivello with comedic genius, gets to grips with Seymour Krelborn played by Niall McDonagh, at a rehearsal for Letterkenny Musical Society’s production of Little Shop of Horrors in An Grianán Theatre from Feb 17-21.Under the keen eye of Director Billy Patterson and Producer Noel O’Donnell, the energetic and talented bunch of singers and actors have put together a stunning show that you really do not want to miss.Having previously played Mr Sowerberry the undertaker in Oliver and Francis Fryer in Calamity Jane, to huge acclaim, Niall McDonagh returns in the role of Seymour Krelborn who works in Mr Mushnik’s Flower Shop on Skid Row with his colleague Audrey. Ciara Gallagher who appeared in both Annie and Oliver and starred in Calendar Girls is delightful in the role of Audrey while Emile Rainey plays her sadistic dentist boyfriend Orin Scrivello with comedic genius.Fresh from his fantastic performance as Nicely-Nicely Johnson in Guys and Dolls Chris Duddy is superb as Mr. Mushnik while Nicola Shields, Maria Rushe and Julianna Ayton bring a wealth of talent and experience to their roles as three drop-out school girls.Donal Kavanagh relishes his role as the voice of the plant ‘Audrey II’ and of course there are familiar faces aplenty in the other roles and chorus numbers.The super dancing for the show this time has been expertly put together under the guidance of Maire Kelly as choreographer.As usual the LMS have built the foundations for this superb show on excellent music and nothing has changed under new musical director Denise Roper. Of course early booking is advisable because recent LMS productions sold out in a flash.Tickets for this must-see musical are available by contacting the box office at An Grianán 0035374 9120777 or online at angrianan.comMUSICAL SOCIETY’S ‘LITTLE SHOP’ TO BRING COMEDY AND MUSIC TO AN GRIANAN was last modified: February 12th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:letterkennyLittle Shop of Horrorslast_img read more
