Nine students from West Grantham Academy St Hugh’s have made it through auditions and secured a place in Lincoln’s pantomime early next year.
All of the students who auditioned recieved a role. They will be busy with rehearsals for the next few months to learn the song and dance routines. The performance of Peter Pan will run from February 20-23 at the Theatre Royal in Lincoln. Anita Harvey and Jacob Summers were cast as Lost Boys, Leah Stocks, Ryan Parker, Poppy Breeze Brice, Terri Parker and Shai Clarke as pirates and Chloe Summers and Rachel Carr as Indians. Teacher Gillian Brady said: “We are proud of them and are very much looking forward to seeing the producition!” All of the students are in the performing arts gifted and talent programme at St Hugh’s. At the auditions, they had to sing and dance in front of the directors on their own. After everybody got through the first round, they were seperated into groups depending on the roles they were auditioning for, and eventually learned that everybody had got a part.
