Lucy all set for Little Shop

A former Morpeth resident is bringing yet another musical smash to the North East stage.

Lucy Sage has staged a string of major productions, bringing internationally-acclaimed industry professionals to the region to work alongside her pupils at the Sage Academy of Performing Arts in Newcastle.

Now she will work with Director Ian Waller (Singing In The Rain and Mamma Mia) and Musical Director Richie Anderson (Dirty Dancing and Sister Act) to present Little Shop of Horrors.

Miss Sage, who set up the academy after graduating from Italia Conti, said: “We are extremely excited about this production. I think it’s one of the best musicals around and never fails to entertain audiences of all ages. Little Shop is, however, one of the most challenging shows we’ve ever produced.”

It runs at Northern Stage, from May 19 to 20. Tickets cost £15, £12 conc, £8 children, available on 0191 230 5151.
