Little Shop of Horrors is now open for business
AFTER three months of rehearsing, lost voices, staying back after school and countless hours singing, the Dalby State High School production of Little Shop of Horrors has finally opened.
On Tuesday night, the cast took to the stage of the Dalby Great Hall to show family, friends and the town what they had been working towards.
Director Janet Ash said despite the usual pre-show jitters, the cast was keen to get on stage and give it their all.
"Everybody was kind of raring to go,” Ms Ash said.
"They were quite nervous, obviously a lot of them had never performed in front of an audience before.
"It's very different doing a rehearsal and performing in front of each other to actually getting real people in there who've paid money so there was lots of nerves but they were very excited.”
The director and school drama teacher said to have the show up on stage was a relief.
What was particularly satisfying was seeing the students perform so well under pressure.
Little Shop of Horrors will be showing tonight and tomorrow night from 7.30pm, with an extra matinee performance on tomorrow at 1pm.
