A LUCKY bunch of 27 young people have been cast in this year’s pantomime adventure at the White Rock Theatre.

The youngsters are aged between eight and 19, and are all from the local area including Hastings, Bexhill, St Leonards, Eastbourne, Roberstbridge, Winchelsea and Pebsham.

Daryl Back, the show’s executive producer who led the initial auditions said: “I had a fantastic time at the auditions and it was an absolute pleasure to see so many boys auditioning for the roles of John, Michael and the Lost Boys.

“The standard of the dancers was incredibly high and it was really hard to select the final teams!”

Those who made it through the auditions will be working with the show’s professional creative team throughout the autumn in readiness for the pantomime season.

Peter Pan opens on December 8 at the White Rock Theatre.
