Little Shop Of Horrors to run at Sheffield Theatres this festive season

Little Shop Of Horrors

Sheffield Theatres has announced a new production of hit musical Little Shop Of Horrors for this festive season.

Amy Hodge (Fantastically Great Women Who Changed The World, Henry VIII) will direct the killer rock musical which features the songs Little Shop of Horrors, Suddenly Seymour and Skid Row (Downtown).

It will run at the venue’s Crucible theatre from 7 December 2024 – 18 January 2025.

The musical forms part of the final season from Robert Hastie, who steps down after eight years as Artistic Director.

The season will also include a new production of Chariots of Fire by Mike Bartlett, directed by Robert Hastie. This production celebrates the 100th anniversary of the 1924 Paris Olympics, focusing on the true story of two athletes and their mutual support for each other’s beliefs.

Following their successful collaboration on ROCK / PAPER / SCISSORS, Chris Bush and director Elin Schofield reunite to bring a fresh adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House to the stage, promising a modern twist on the classic play.

In 2025, a collaboration with Utopia Theatre will present Death and the King’s Horseman by Wole Soyinka, directed by Mojisola Kareem. This new co-production explores deep cultural and societal themes.

Meanwhile, Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play A Streetcar Named Desire, directed by Josh Seymour, is set to ignite passions and shatter illusions with its compelling narrative.

At the Tanya Moiseiwitsch Playhouse, Sheffield Theatres and Theatre Centre collaborate once again to present Dizzy by Mohammed Zain-Dada.

Additionally, the makers of the Olivier-nominated hit Cruise return with KENREX, a unique blend of Western, true crime, and music.

Plus, Malorie Blackman’s award-winning book Pig Heart Boy, adapted by Winsome Pinnock and directed by Tristan Finn-Aiduenu, is a co-production with Unicorn Theatre and Children’s Theatre Partnership, bringing a powerful story to Sheffield audiences.
