The Norwich-based Central School of Dancing and Performing Arts will take to the stage at the city venue on Sunday, April 19 with a show called Heart and Soul.

About 200 children aged from three to 18 are involved in the production.

School principal Charlotte Corbett said: 'The show is raising funds for Save the Children... Act one is a look at the lives of children past and present and the difficulties that children have in the world today.

'It's also about historical difficulties like in the Victorian era, and also child labour, and children that aren't cared for and run away.

'Act two is a look at funk and soul and it's much lighter. It's about the joy of dancing, singing and acting. It looks at love, and the passion of dance.

'We are hoping to raise funds for Save the Children and we will be doing a bucket collection for the charity.'
