AN award-winning amateur dramatic society are bringing their successful production of Little Shop of Horrors to the Isle of Wight.

The Mitre Players are thrilled to be returning to the Apollo Theatre, Newport, on a summer tour.

Little Shop of Horrors tells the story of Seymour Krelborn (played by Mitre newcomer Sam Webber), an orphan taken in by Mr Mushnik (played by seasoned actor Kevin Gauntlett), the owner of a rundown florist on Skid Row.

He is secretly in love with the other employee, Audrey (Kate Gauntlett), but she is out of his league and seeing a successful dentist (who just happens to be a nitrous oxide using sadist)!

Seymour's fortunes are turned around when he finds a weird and interesting plant. As long as the plant is growing, so is his success.

The only snag is that feeding the plant requires a secret ingredient that's easy to come by as long as you don't mind getting your hands dirty!

The production will owe something to the Regent's Park production from 2018 in style and direction.

A spokesperson for the Mitre Players said: "We hope anyone who saw our version of Bugsy Malone three years ago will be eager to return and we promise you a great night out at the theatre.

"We have a young and very talented cast of 20 who are keen to entertain, a crew of ten or so working behind the scenes, and a live band."

The show runs from Tuesday, August 2, to Saturday, August 6.

Tickets are available at or by phoning 01983 210010/527267.

Remember, whatever you do...don’t feed the plants!
