Mere Players present Little Shop of Horrors, a musical comedy by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, at Diss Corn Hall from May 10-12 at 7.30pm, with a 2.30pm matinee on May 12.

Trapped in Mr Mushnik’s Skid Row Florists, the only bright spot in Seymour Krelborn’s life is his secret love for ditzy co-worker, Audrey. That is until he discovers a strange and interesting plant – a plant that not only talks but has an insatiable appetite for human blood.

Based on Roger Corman’s famously bad 1960s B-movie, the authors have transformed this unpromising material into the greatest ever, fun for all the family, science fiction musical spectacular spoof of all time.

This show will not only have you singing and dancing but eyeing your begonias warily!

Tickets – £12/£11 (Saturday matinee £11/£10) – from Diss Corn Hall box office on 01379 652241 or at boxoffice@disscornhall.co.uk; or Stodel, Optometrists, Mere Street, Diss, on 01379 642598.
