Catholic Regional College Melton is going green this week, with the opening of their school production of Little Shop of Horrors.

The classic musical about a giant man-eating plant and the lovable horticulturist Seymour has been a favourite of theatre goers for more than 30 years, and promises to be a huge hit.

When Seymour begins working at a rundown florist in the seedy part of town, he quickly falls in love with shop assistant Audrey, but his life is transformed when he encounters a unique plant with a thirst for blood.

More than 80 students have been working non-stop to create a memorable show that is sure to have audiences rolling in the aisles.

The show will run from 7pm in the school’s Performing Arts Centre on July 25, 26 and 27. Tickets are available at
