A FORMER Corrie star features in an exciting new take on the popular show ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ next week.

Rachel Lewskovac (Natasha Blakeman in Coronation Street) takes the lead role of Audrey with a supporting cast at the Academy Theatre, Birdwell, on October 23 to 27.

A spokesman for LS Theatre Productions said: “It’s really exciting for us to attract someone of Rachel’s calibre to the show and for all our young actors working with her. It has been a great learning opportunity as Rachel has worked with them over the last months and passed on her knowledge of the industry.”

Rachel was nominated for an Olivier award for best actress in a musical when she starred as the young Viv in Spend Spend Spend.

The cast also features Shorelle Hepkin from CBBC Wolfblood in the role of Ronette, and Richard Morgan from ITV’s Search for a Star - Grease Is The Word.

There are still some tickets priced £10 and £12 for what promises to be an exhilarating experience.
