CHILDREN who want to take part in Ely’s first professional pantomime this Christmas are being invited to attend auditions this spring.

KD Theatre Productions - who will stage 35 performances of Jack and the Beanstalk at Ely Maltings - are looking for youngsters aged between six and 13 to make up three groups of panto babes.

Director Daniel Bell said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to get involved in a professional production. They will get to perform alongside professionally trained actors in a production worthy of West End quality.

“ Experience isn’t necessary, we are looking for young enthusiastic children, and a big smile doesn’t go a miss!”

The children will sing and dance during the show that runs from December 26 until January 14.
