FORMER Coronation Street actress Rachel Leskovac will be coming to Barnsley to appear on stage in a production of Little Shop of Horrors.

Rachel - who was hairdresser Natasha Blakeman in the ITV soap - will play Audrey in the cult classic which tells the story of a nerdish florist who finds success and romance with the help of a giant man-eating plant.

She will be supported on stage at the Birdwell Academy Theatre by a cast of local performers who auditioned in August.

Director Lee Semley said: "It's a massive achievement for us to get someone of Rachel's calibre to join us."

The LS Productions version of Little Shop of Horrors runs from Monday October 22 - Saturday October 27.
