The girls from the Noise and Chance Dance School are busy in rehearsals and are set to star alongside Su Pollard as Miss Hannigan and David McAlister as Daddy Warbucks in the show, which is running from March 7 to March 12 at lynn Corn Exchange.

They are Lillie-Anna Kirkpatrick, eight, Jessica Kay, 10, Emily Clark, 10, Harly Seekings, 11, Ceylan Onurlu, 11, Maisie Chandler, 12, Lauren Ashby, 13, Rebecca Williams, 12 and Olivia Grummett, 12.

Rebecca said: 'I was really excited when I found out because it is a really big opportunity but I think I will be a bit nervous on the first night.

'What I have found interesting is the differences between the movie and the scripts I have seen.'

Olivia added: 'This is really going to be a once in a lifetime opportunity and to be asked to be one of the orphans is amazing. When I found out I was stunned and I couldn't believe it. I am really looking forward to performing on the stage and in front of lots of people.'

Trina Lee, principle of the school, is delighted that her dancers have been chosen to take part.
