🗓Sat 13th July 2024 - Sun 14th July 2024

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.

The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his co-worker crush. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!

Thanks for coming Anum Qaisar MP! ✨

What a brilliant Saturday evening spent with the wonderful team at Imagine That Performing Arts based on Anderson Street in Airdrie.

Marking 10 years since they were founded tonight we had the pleasure of watching students perform material that they’ve been working on, and tonight was also an official assessment for them.

Huge well done to Kieran, Aidan and the team for organising it all - and huge well done to all the students who performed tonight. I was blown away by the sheer talent!

As we head into 2024, we're reflecting on all we achieved in 2023 and what a brilliant year it has been.

We took to the stage with seven excellent productions, gained yet more fantastic exam results, kicked off our 10th year celebrations, won Performing Arts School of the Year for the third consecutive year, went to London, and a whole host of other exciting events and projects.

In the last week of term we decided to take on one last project, just for some fun - we recorded Auld Lang Syne with 7 of our weekly classes.

A huge thanks to Niamh and Sean for editing this together. 🎤🎬

Here's to new adventures! We wish you all a very Happy New Year when it comes and best wishes for 2024.

We can hardly believe it’s been 2 weeks since our last performance of Cinderella!

We hope now enough time has passed that we are able to share these photographs and thank (or maybe apologise to) the men that were chosen by Danni and Fanni! We hope you’re not too scarred men! 😂🫣
