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.
