IF YOU know children in Great Yarmouth who would like to perform in a professional Christmas pantomime locally - and attend a stage or dance school - now is their big chance.

Producers of Lowestoft's first major panto in over half a century will be holding auditions this month for talented local children wishing to join the cast. UK Productions Ltd will be auditioning for Juvenile and Senior dancers for the production, Peter Pan, on Wednesday, August 13 at the Marina Theatre, Lowestoft.

Two sets of eight boys to play John, Michael and the Lost Boys, height restriction of 4'10” and two sets of six girls to perform as the junior ensemble no younger than seven, height restriction of 4' 8” are required and applications will only be accepted from dance and stage schools.

Seniors: Senior Boys and Girls aged 16 years and over no shorter than 5'2.”

Choreographer Joanne Day will teach a set dance routine to the dancers on the day.

Peter Pan will be the Marina Theatre's first major professional Pantomime as the venue builds on the success of musicals such as Annie and Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, both of which gave local youngsters the chance to perform alongside a professional cast.
