More than 250 young dancers from Ponteland and around the area will be on stage in a special dance show next month.

Jill Errington School of Dance is hosting its dance school show Most Wanted at the People’s Theatre, Heaton, on Saturday, March 18, and Suday, March 19.

The plot of the show involves all the bad characters from films, books and musicals, so favourites such as the Child Catcher, Cat Woman and Scar all make an appearance.

In fact, seven different characters are all played by one actor Jonny Woolett, from Ponteland Rep.

Jonny treats each character he plays with a different costume, accent and mannerism, which is quite a feat.

Once again the show is raising money for charity, and this time it is Together for Short Lives, which helps children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions at St Oswald’s Hospice in Gosforth, and international charity the Pegasus Children’s Project, which helps educate and home children near Katmandu.

Rehearsals are progressing well. Children aged from two upwards will perform, the youngest playing Cruella De Vil’s dalmatians, with older students each taking on an iconic role of a villain.
