The search is on to find a local dancer to join the cast of fun family show, Gangsta Granny.

Producers of the play, which comes to Norwich Theatre Royal on July 13-15, are looking for someone from Norfolk to take on the role of Diane opposite the professional cast.

The successful performer will have a short solo dance in the middle of the show as well as being part of the finale routine.

Those wishing to apply must be 16 years old as of August this year but be able to play a character who is 11-12 years old.

The chosen dancer will receive a video link to learn the routine. They will not need to rehearse with the cast but will need to commit to each performance in Norwich.

'Gangsta Granny is creating a buzz around the country and audiences are loving the chance to see this favourite book brought to life.'
