Talented young dancers will be taking to the stage alongside television baddie Steve McFadden at this year’s pantomime, Aladdin, at the Orchard Theatre.

The 16 performers are aged between six and 11 years old and train at the Bexley-based Liz Burville Performing Arts Centre.

Their moment in the limelight starts this Saturday (8) when Aladdin opens at the Dartford theatre, and will see them perform dance routines in one of their biggest shows ever.

Dance teacher Liz Burville said: “It’s nice to see a new set of children being involved with each pantomime. It’s such a huge experience for them and to be able to work in such a professional environment and as part of a high calibre show is very important for them.”

Aladdin will be at The Orchard between Saturday 8 December 2012 and Sunday 6 January 2013.
