Horrors is a little gem for its cast

Despite having had just four days to rehearse and a morning to set the stage, Belfast's Music Theatre 4 Youth pulled off a terror-ific adaptation of Little Shop of Horrors last night.

The Waterfront Studio theatre was packed for what was described by director Mariano Detry in his introduction as a “dress rehearsal”.

But all the elements were in place: good singing, committed performances and a magnificent, full-size, man-eating plant.

The cult 1960s-set musical is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.

It was nice to see the young cast revel in the edgier, more macabre moments. None of the cast of 50 sold themselves short.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
