Around 100 young dancers from Norfolk will have the chance to take centre stage at Norwich Theatre Royal.

English Youth Ballet is holding auditions to find fresh talent for their production of Cinderella In Hollywood, which will be at the Theatre Royal from 25-26 May.

The search will begin at Sprowston High School on Tuesday, February 6.

Auditions will be split into two sessions, the first will begin at 5pm and is aimed at dancers aged eight to 11. The second is for 12-18 year olds and starts at 7pm.

Successful candidates will earn a place in the show, which sets the classic tale in 1950s Hollwood, where Cinderella is a seamstress on a film set.

Company Director, Janet Lewis, said: 'Our audition is an experience in itself. Parents and family are encouraged to watch from the audience. We are looking for dancers of all abilities who can show the audience how much they enjoy their dancing.'
