Titchfield Festival Youth Theatre are preparing to put on their production A Little Plant From Outer Space: the first science fiction spoof the company have ever performed.
A Little Plant From Outer Space has been especially written and directed by John O'Hanlon for Titchfield Youth Theatre. The play is very loosely based on a short story by Roger Corman and Charles Griffiths, which was adapted into a rarely seen B movie and a hugely popular stage and film musical.
"Our version is very different in many ways," the company tell us. "We have added new characters and altered the storyline and the ending; also, the plant does not grow into an eight foot monster, much to everyone's relief!"
Titchfield Youth Theatre have been rehearsing since September, developing the characters, American accents and working on the comic timing crucial to this piece. The alien plant itself has been designed and made by a local art teacher and all the young people in the company come from schools in the Fareham area.
We'd highly recommend getting along to see this at Titchfield Festival Theatre. Tickets available online or via the Box Office. Link below.
