Iconic show returns

A MAN eating plant, innocent heroine, misguided hero and a trio of wise-cracking, all knowing skid row inhabitants are just the tip of the iceberg in the iconic Little Shop of Horrors.

The show will be staged by the Wonthaggi Theatrical Group at its new home at State Coal Mine, in the September school holidays.

It has been 10 years since WTG first put this entertaining musical with universal appeal on the stage, so it is with nostalgia and excitement that they bring it to life again with a new cast, fresh approach and respect to the iconic features which audiences love.

With an ensemble cast boasting the experience and talent of Will Hanley, Kerryn Moren and Elly Poletti’s magnificent voice bringing Audrey II (the plant) to life, combined with newcomers and familiar faces alike, rehearsals are already brimming with energy, fun and a love of the clever comedy with an edgy dark side.

Jay Nelson makes a welcome return to WTG as the self serving Mr Mushnik. Chris Jobe joins the company for the first time in the pivotal role of The Dentist along with Dave Milnes, regular WTG backstage crew, joining the cast onstage.

The trio of Jade Dalton, Meg Jinnette and Alana Reid are dancing, singing and acting up a storm and will be set to entrance the audience at every turn, wink and sly grin as the plant has its wicked way.

Samuel Bowden takes on multiple cameo characters and along with the expertise and commitment of Hannah Lilleyman, Brock Niessan, Raf Pyka, Frankie Murray-White and Dave Milnes.

WTG encourages everyone wanting laughter, thought provoking themes and fabulous music to book their tickets now for their limited season.

The show will play from September 22 to October 2. Tickets are available now at www.wtg.org.au.
