A cast of 56 Emanuel School actors, singers, dancers and musicians dazzled a packed audience on Tuesday at the opening night of the production of Little Shop of Horrors.

 

Jaimie Boiskin  and Steven Jocum

Year 11 student, Steven Jocum, plays the lead of Seymour Krelborn, a love-struck florist from Skid Row who is faced with the moral dilemma of killing a number of unfortunate people in order to satisfy his flesh-craving plant, Audrey II. The carnivorous plant is named for
Seymour’s love interest, Audrey, played by Jaimie Boiskin, also Year 11.

The production of this black comedy was developed to provide an opportunity for students to excel in a range of comedic and dramatic roles. They did not disappoint. Representing more than eight months of dedicated rehearsal for the cast, band and production team, the sold-out performances received rave reviews from the audience.

Dani Klein, mother of three Emanuel students including Asher, who played Mr Mushnik who also meets an untimely and grizzly end, was impressed by the performance, “It was a show that was absolutely brimming with energy, joy and professionalism.”

Emanuel School Principal, Anne Hastings, felt the production was an instant success, “The passion and obvious enjoyment shown by the students throughout the performance were infectious. I must commend Adam Majsay, the School’s Head of Music and Samantha Bauer, Head of Drama, and all their cast and musicians, for their endless hours of preparation and co-ordination. The production was highly entertaining and professional, and the audience was fully engaged throughout the show.”
