Pump House CYT presents:

Little Shop of Horrors

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical by Howard Ashman and Alen Menken (who also wrote Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin), Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years.

The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" - after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!

One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows, Little Shop Of Horrors the charmingly tongue in cheek comedy has been produced worldwide to incredible success

Pump House CYT presents:

Dungeness

A one act play, part of the National Theatre Connections programme.

Fifty years on from the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England, Chris Thompson wanted to write a play about the struggles and the joy of being gay. In a remote part of the UK, where nothing ever happens, a group of teenagers share a safe house for LGBT+ young people. While their shared home welcomes difference, it can be tricky for self-appointed group leader Birdie to keep the peace.

The group must decide how they want to commemorate an attack that happened to people like them in a country far away. How do you take to the streets and protest if you’re not ready to tell the world who you are? If you’re invisible, does your voice still count? A play about love, commemoration and protest.

Pump House Theatre Company presents:

Cheshire Cats

Grown women, aching feet and heaving bosoms !  Follow the Cheshire Cats team as they speed walk their way to fundraising success in the London Moonwalk.

Hilary, Siobhan, Yvonne, Vicky and Maggie are attempting to walk 13 miles across the capital in record time in their decorated bras and posh new trainers, but the 6th member of the team doesn't seem to meet the physical criteria !

Cheshire Cats is a cross between a girls night out and a real mission to support a cause close to many hearts, with plenty of laughs and a few tears along the way.
