The popular theatre society will once again take to the stage at Shanklin Theatre — after being unable to rehearse or perform for a long time due to the Covid pandemic.

The last 18 months has seen shows cancelled, lost revenues and hard working members unable to take part in the thing they love the most…. the theatre.

Isle of Wight County Press:

In March 2020, The Island Savoyards were just two weeks away from staging Kipps – Half a Sixpence when it had to be cancelled in the final stages of rehearsals.

Throughout the pandemic, the society has kept its members entertained with online quizzes and virtual performances.

2021 marks The Island Savoyards' 50th year. While the society has made the decision to postpone the big golden anniversary celebrations until 2022, members were eager to get back to the rehearsal room and on stage as soon as restrictions allowed.

This October, 21 to 24, they will be performing the deviously delicious Little Shop of Horrors at Shanklin Theatre.

The iconic show has been devouring the hearts of theatre goers across the world for more than 30 years.

With lyrics by Howard Ashman and music by Disney favourite Alan Menken, Little Shop of Horrors is a tongue and cheek comedy, with an early Motown vibe and a hungry carnivorous venus fly trap that is out of this world.

The creative team is Pete Stockman (director), Rosie Sales (choreographer) and Andrew Woodford (musical director), who will be conducting the live orchestra.
