The DIT Drama Society bring the musical ‘The Little Shop of Horrors’ to Dublin


The DIT Drama Society is delighted to stage the musical ‘The Little Shop of Horrors’ in the O'Reilly Theatre on the 18th and 19th of March. Adapted from the 1960s film, ‘The Little Shop of Horrors’ is a comedy rock horror musical about a florist who discovers a strange and unusual plant which has a taste for human flesh. The musical is produced and performed by the students of the DIT Drama Society. Tickets are available online through Eventbrite and on DIT Campuses from the Drama Society team or in the DITSU shops.

Prices are set at €10 for students and €12 for adults. Link to Eventbrite for tickets.

The show this year is directed by Mairèad Donohoe, a second year Leisure Management student, and musically directed by Raymond England. It hosts a cast of 16 students and a production team of over 30 students from all disciplines in DIT. The team have been working hard over the past few months, rehearsing, designing sets and creating ‘Audrey Two’ the hungry alien plant, currently standing over 7ft high.

The DIT Drama Society produced their first musical ‘Avenue Q’ last April, which kicked off the musical bug for members. The Society creates an opportunity for students from all areas of study to practice and enjoy the art of Drama. Members get the chance to perform and write plays, gain knowledge of stage production and of course develop acting skills.

DIT Drama Society’s production of ‘The Little Shop of Horrors’ is a musical for everyone and will leave anyone who sees the musical, singing all of the songs on the way home.

Director Mairèad Donohoe said "Both cast and crew are putting a huge effort into getting this show on the road and it is already looking promising. Everyone is really looking forward to the production and should be a fantastic night for everyone to come see".
