A magical musical road trip panto is the highlight of Sheringham Little Theatre's newly-released winter line-up.

A professional cast will chart the colourful tale of The Wizard of Oz, headed by Hana Stewart as Dorothy.

The 22-year-old. from Wimbledon, has family in Sheringham and visited the theatre as a child.

She said: 'I saw the panto one Christmas, so appearing in the show feels so special to me. I cannot wait to spend this Christmas in Kansas.'

Munchkin children are being drawn from local dance schools, and auditions will be held in early September for the chorus line of farmhands and villagers.

Theatre director Debbie Thompson said: 'The Wizard of Oz is such a lovely story, but is not a regular traditional panto – so we look forward to doing something just a little bit different.'

The shows run from December 9 to January 1. Tickets via the box-office on 01263 822347.
