Basics Junior Theatre School is presenting final performances of the outrageously nutty musical, "Little Shop of Horrors".

American orphan Seymour Krelborn finds love, fame and fortune after raising a blood-drinking plant. But when a sadistic dentist steps on to the scene, Seymour's life takes an even darker turn.

The musical is currently featuring at The Palace Theatre, Manchester, at a cost of £58 per ticket - but Basics is bringing it to Colne for a fraction of the price. To see the standard, check out the school's rehearsal footage at https://www.facebook.com/BasicsJuniorTheatre/videos/1153297328081518/

Performances are taking place tonight, tomorrow and on Saturday at the Pendle Hippodrome Theatre at 7-30pm nightly. The Saturday matinee begins at 2pm.
