Superstar dancers aged between 6-11 from the Central School of Dance in Norwich are set to star in the upcoming Theatre Royal panto Jack and the Beanstalk.

Dee Jago, choreographer, who auditioned the youngsters said: 'We're looking for a good personality with lots of smiles.

'We need three groups for the pantomime which is around 30 youngsters and around 60 have auditioned.'

Pupils at the school, located on St Georges Street, had three hour long sessions in the Sundays leading up to the audition.

Adam Carpenter, co-principal, said: 'They had to learn a song from Toy Story and a dance so that they felt prepared to come and learn Dee's choreography.'

Each dancer has four costumes to wear during the panto.
