A spectacular show featuring local performers is set to be a real family affair with three sisters and their mum and dad all taking part.

West End To Broadway at the Norwich Theatre Royal will feature Emma, Rebecca and Ellie Jermy, while their father Kevin helps out backstage and their mother Angela performs and fundraises for the Hethersett-based Yvonne School of Dance, which is presenting the show on Father's Day - Sunday, June 20 at 2.30pm and 7pm.

The three junior members of the Jermy family, who are from Hethersett, have been part of the dance school for many years, and their parents have supported them all the way through as well as giving vital voluntary help to the dance school.

Emma Jermy, 20, who has been dancing for 17 years, said: 'We've got really good teamwork going on here, and before I was always the group up from my sisters, but now we are all in the same group so it's great to be able to do it together, and it's good to have my mum dancing as well - she's always been able to help out.'

Rebecca Jermy, 18, said: 'We all have a little practice session at home, and dad helps backstage. Because we do pantomime as well he's always helped and he's taken us to rehearsals and been there for support.'

And Ellie Jermy, 15, added: 'We've got a number of dances to learn. I don't think it's ever been competitive, it's always fun to go into a group knowing you're going to be accepted - it helps when you don't know the dances and you have someone there to help you.'
