Students from Stagecoach High Wycombe, Stagecoach Henley and Marlow took part in their own interpretation of Little Shop of Horrors at the Wycombe Swan.

Showcasing the famous 1980s film which starred Bill Murray, Rick Moranis, John Candy, James Belushi and Steve Martin, more than 200 students from the region participated in the popular rock, horror, musical, comedy on Saturday, June 15 and Sunday, June 16.

The students in the production were aged between six to 18-years-old and despite only performing at the St Mary Street venue for two days, the group of young performers had been rehearsing for the show for several weeks.

Stagecoach High Wycombe along with Stagecoach Henley and Marlow are part of a network of 1800 extra-curricular performing arts schools worldwide.

Clare Gosling, principal of the two Stagecoach schools said: “Preparing for this event has been a fantastic exercise in teaching the children how to work together and it has been wonderful to see them flourish.

“The children have exceeded all expectations, and it shows just how beneficial the performing arts can be in giving children skills they can take forward with them throughout their lives.”

Stagecoach Performing Arts was founded in 1988 and is one of the UK’s largest network of extra-curricular performing arts schools for children.
