Can horror be funny? It can, when it’s the Little Shop of Horrors – a musical about a florist who raises an exotic carnivorous plant (top right). Dubai Performing Arts students will perform the musical at Ductac, Mall of the Emirates, from April 14-15. Tickets from Dh120 at ductac.org
To attend or not to attend isn’t even a question when it’s a performance of Shakespeare’s classic drama Hamlet. The Dubai Drama Group (above left) is performing The Bard’s tragedy from April 14-15 at The Junction, Al Serkal Avenue. What makes this performance unique is just five actors will represent all 24 characters in the play – just as it was originally performed over 400 years ago. Tickets from Dh100 at the junction dubai. com. Shows at 3pm and 8pm.
