My View, Margaret Herbert: This is your chance to take to the stage

Ever fancied trying your hand at acting?

You could soon have the chance to try it – or indeed any element of the work that goes on in a theatre.

That is because Doncaster Little Theatre would like to invite everyone to this year’s Enrolment Evening at the theatre on Monday, September 14 at 7pm.

This is to be a social evening and an opportunity to meet and socialise.

Membership will run on a yearly basis from September to September.

This is a good opportunity for new members to come along and have a chat and we are still desperately in need of volunteers to help behind the scenes.

The behind-the-scenes roles at the theatre include jobs such as helping in the bar, or doing stints in the box office.

This is all going on at a time when the theatre has plenty happening on stage.

On Tuesday, September 15 and Wednesday, September 16 the Little Theatre presents Little Shop of Horrors.

This is the story of Seymour Krelborn who is a nerdy orphan working at Mushnik’s Skid Row Flower Shop, in the downtown urban area of Skid Row.

He has an undeniable crush on his fellow co-worker Audrey, and is mistreated and disregarded by Mr Mushnik on a daily basis.

Business is sleepy and as Mr Mushnik grows tired of his little shop, Seymour discovers a strange and interesting new plant, which does wonders for business.

He calls it Audrey II.

This plant does not crave light of the sun or the hydration of water – come and see the show for this most intriguing story.

This play is directed by Oran Kenyon and Rhys Burns and the story is based on the book by Howard Ashman.

In my opinion, this is definitely not one to miss. Book now at the box office on Doncaster 01302 340422.

It is open from 6pm to 8pm daily.

Little Shop of Horrors is just one of a number of shows which are going on at the theatre during September.

This weekend a musical cabaret was on stage in the form of C.A.T.S’ Production of Too Darn Hot.

Tonight it’s the second night of a gripping new play, called The Thrill Of Love.

The true story of the life of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain, opened last night.

But it continues tonight with a performance at 7.30pm.

Anyone who wants to drive to see one of the productions will find it useful to know that there are concessionary parking tickets available at the box office on arrival for the adjoining car park.

Also, if you’re planning to come here, please note the entrance for the car park is now via Frances Street.
