Children prepare for song and dance show in Norwich

There were pirates, fairies and a whole variety of film and TV characters singing and dancing on stage at Norwich Playhouse today.

The children, aged from five to 12, were preparing ahead of a performance tonight.

In all around 50 children were brought together to perform a variety of routines and dances which included fairies singing and dancing to Michael Jackson's Thriller, a scene from Mamma Mia! and pirates performing to the Pirates of the Caribean soundtrack.

The children were there as part of a school holiday scheme.

They were taking part in Broadland district council's Tots2Teens programme's musical theatre activities.

As part of the programme they were able to enjoy a two day professionally run theatre workshop that culminated in last night's performance.

The musical theatre course was run for the council by Dramactive.
