Teenage Miss Cambridgeshire 2016 winner Alissa King-Underwood will play the part of Alice Fitzwarren in Dick Whittington at Harpenden Public Halls this December.

Alissa was one of the youngest contestants to reach the final in Miss England at only 17, and she is now hoping to wow the audiences in Harpenden with her singing and acting.

She is no stranger to the stage, having appeared in a number of amateur productions in St Neots, her home town.
