Review: The Little Shop of Horrors, Festival Theatre

ROGER CORMAN'S 1960 cult classic The Little Shop of Horrors is notable for three things: our first introduction to the triffid, known as Audrey, Jack Nicholson's first and most disturbing motion picture performance and Mrs Krelborn's immortal health-related line: "Bring me the Evening News, they're running a self diagnosis competition.

Sleeping Beauty, your reviews: 'The costumes were all very eye-catching'

Anna Innan, 16, school pupil, Morningside: "I enjoyed all of it, it was very good. It was quite easy to follow the main story. Princess Aurora was very good as a leading dancer. It seemed like they have tried to modernise the story a bit which was quite interesting and maybe made it more accessible."
