A Hucknall dance school is set to present its very first pantomime when the curtain rises on The Wizard of Oz this weekend.

The Believe Academy’s adaptation of the Frank L Baum classic plays at 7pm on Saturday, February 27, and at 2pm on Sunday 28, at the John Godber Center.

The show was organised by volunteer teachers Becca Mayes, Micaela Witherden, Rachel Gregory and Sarah Davies.

There are 26 youngsters in the cast with ages ranging from three to 15.

Tickets are available from Believe Academy or by calling Simone on 07929354954.

Founder Simone Witherden said: “The cast and coaches have all worked their socks off and would love people to come along.”

Meanwhile Simone says the academy, in Portland Street, Hucknall, has started to work in schools with its life-skill classes which help equip and prepare children for the journey through adolescence and beyond.

Simone says she is now looking for trainers who ‘have a heart for young people’. Full training is provided. For more information cemail Simone on believeacademyuk@gmail.com
