If you’re a fan of dark comedy you’ll love the smash hit musical ‘Little Shop of Horrors’, a fun and family friendly performance with lots of singing and dancing.

This act has plenty of ‘show style’ tunes to counter its freaky plot with the students of Dubai Performing Arts adding plenty of fun energy to their dancing and acting – a true theatre treat for all!

Where: DUCTAC, Level 2
How much: AED120 – AED150
