AN OLD furniture shop in Murwillumbah is set for a revamp when the Little Shop of Horrors is performed there next month.

Double Mask productions have started a new program that allows school leavers to try theatre on their gap year; this is the first of three productions for the group of young actors and actresses.

"There are seven in the cast and it's a small show," director Lachlan Glasby said.

"The actors range from 18 to 20-years-old and they've been practicing since December.

"They're all very excited and it is a bit daunting but they're all loving it."

The tale starts when Seymour Krelbourn introduces his weird plant Audrey II to the world.

Nobody suspected it was a singing, dancing alien from another planet.

Mr Glasby said the brilliant musical is reminiscent of the 1960's with a score inspired by Franki Valli and the four seasons, The Supremes and R & B.

"That's what inspired us to do it," he said.

"We love the sound of the 50's and 60's and this musical really makes use of some awesome music.

"It's a lot of Fun."

Mr Glasby said he saw the building in Prospero Street and I thought what would go well there, it'd be awesome to do something there

"So we decided we'd do Little Shop of Horrors," he said.

"In an actual little shop."

The show will be performed on March 22 and 23 at 7.30pm.

To purchase tickets go to www.doublemask.com, contact Mr Glasby on 0432387691 or visit Murwillumbah Music.

Tickets are $16.00 per adult and $11.00 concession.
