Grantham Youth Theatre Society to perform Little Shop of Horrors at Walton Academy Theatre
A youth theatre group will perform its latest production over three nights next week.
Grantham Youth Theatre Society (GYTS) will perform Little Shop of Horrors at the Walton Academy Theatre for three nights on August 24, 25 and 26 at 7pm.
The musical follows hopeless romantic Seymour, played by Bethan Stanley, as he looks for his perfect partner. The production also stars Jasmine Townley as Audrey.
GYTS is an amateur production company run entirely by young people between the ages of 16 and 30.
It offers young people the opportunity to take part in roles, such as producing, directing or choreographing.
Tickets can be bought here for £8 (£6.50 for concessions).
The show’s producer Lottie Morris was handed GYTS after the pandemic and was given the task to revive the group.
Lottie said: ‘‘It‘s been delightful to work with such a diligent production team, cast and band.
“I cannot wait for audiences to see just what talent the society has to offer.’’
With an intense week of rehearsals, the talented cast and creative team have a short turnaround time.
Directing this year is Georgia Barnett, who said: ‘’I am thrilled to be directing this year’s show with GYTS, it has been such an honour to lead this outstanding cast.
“The show is such a testament to their incredible talent and hard work that they have put in.
“It has been the best experience working with not only the cast but the amazing production team, who have all worked so hard to put on this incredible show.
“Come and see this amazing cast and show for an evening filled with fun, talent and a whole lot of plants.”
21-year-old Bethan, one of the lead actors, has been part of GYTS since 2018.
Bethan said: “I am very happy that the society is making its comeback this year and with such a phenomenal show.
“The rehearsals are going so well, and I feel very privileged to be a part of such a talented cast!”
