It is going to be an amazing show!

Prop and Costume Call Out for School Production

Rehearsals are underway, props are being designed and costuming is being stitched! Little Shop of Horrors is going to be a hoot!

At Newhaven, we like to reuse, recycle repurpose as much as we can... so... if anyone in our community can assist with any of the following props and/or costumes that would be brilliant!
