Musical theatre group fears poor ticket sales may scupper move to new venue

QUARRY Bank Musical Theatre Society fears poor ticket sales for its forthcoming production of Little Shop of Horrors may jeopardise a move to a new venue.
Members of the recently renamed and revamped society have been hoping to put on a killer last show for their final outing at Netherton Arts Centre before they move to Brierley Hill Civic Hall for all future productions.
But they have only sold around a third of the tickets for the show which is set to run from September 25 to 28 at the historic Northfield Road venue.
Society spokesman Julia Siviter said: “We need to break even so we can go ahead with the move.”
The popular 1960s set musical, which became a cult film in 1986 starring Steve Martin and Rick Moranis, centres on nerdy yet loveable Seymour who stumbles upon a manipulative and blood thirsty plant that he names Audrey II after his love and co worker.
Julia added: “It’s a really, really funny script. It’s been a lot of hard work but rehearsals have been going really well.”
Society chairman Steve Fletcher added: “All the cast and crew are extremely excited to perform this famous musical with its killer plant on the Netherton Arts Centre stage.
“The show is full of comedy, romance and dramatic scenes.”
Performances start at 7.30pm each night and there’s also a Saturday matinee show planned for September 28 starting at 2.30pm.
Tickets are available from ticket secretary Linda Raybould on 01384 820902 or website qbmts.org.uk
