MORE than 350 young dancers will be taking to the stage for a charity show.

The pupils from the June Glennie School of Dance, based in Beccles and Lowestoft, will be performing at Great Yarmouth's Britannia Pier Theatre from October 23 to 25.

Dance Aid 2003 is the school's annual charity show and has had to forsake its regular home in north Suffolk as there is no suitable venue to accommodate so many dancers.

The theatre in Great Yarmouth was chosen for the venue as it has a big stage and enough changing facilities for all the young dancers.

One of the acts this year is a tongue-in-cheek adaptation of Cinderella called The Revenge of the Ugly Sisters and is sure to be a popular fundraiser.

The entire school will feature in the show with dancers aged from three to 17 taking part, along with adults making their important contribution.

School principal, June Glennie, said: "It's an exciting project for us. A tremendous amount of work has gone into rehearsals. It's going to be a fantastic show and we are looking forward to our Britannia Pier adventure."

This year's beneficiaries are the charities nominated by the Lions Club International. Tickets are on sale in Lowestoft at the High Street office of Bettatravel, priced £7.50 for adults and £6.50 for children. More information is available on 01502 585517.
