Young hoofers from The Dance Studio will be filling the chorus and child roles at the Harpenden Public Halls pantomime Cinderella when it opens next month.

The Harpenden and St Albans dance school is back with the Act One pantomime for the third year and has also choreographed this year’s show.

With a large number of students, it was difficult to choose the girls who appear in the show but principal Miriam Bold said: “We have so many talented girls, and we are so pleased to be able to provide some of our best students to appear in Cinderella this December.

“They’re all really looking forward to it. Very excited.”

Producer Chris Law added: “It’s a joy to work with Miriam and her talented staff and dancers. We are so pleased they’re back with us again. The girls add so much to the show.”

Cinderella stars Luke Roberts from TV’s Hi-5 as Buttons, and Steve Leeds from Nick Jr’s Go!Go!Go! as The Prince, both of whom appear daily on TV.

Jess Robinson plays Fairy Godmother and can currently be heard every Saturday evening on ITVs Newzoids and Honey Fine is Cinderella.

Cinderella runs from December 10 to December 22. For more information, and to book tickets, click here or phone the box office on 01582 767525.
