A GROUP of students from Stagecoach Theatre Arts in York are to act, sing and dance alongside Dani Harmer, the star of Tracy Beaker and a 2012 Strictly Come Dancing finalist, in the Easter pantomime Peter Pan.

The pantomime is taking place at York Barbican on Sunday. It also features comedian Bobby Davro and Disney's Art Attack star Lloyd Warbey.

Stagecoach students are to play the parts of Wendy's brothers, John and Michael, Tinkerbell and the regular Lost Boys.

Max Rosen and Charlie Cahill, who are playing John and Michael, have travelled to Surrey to train with the professional cast while rehearsals are currently under way at Stagecoach York for the remaining students.

Stagecoach Principal Sally Thrussell: “This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to put their training into action in a professional tour.”
