Will they be in the panto? Oh, yes they will.... three students from a Saffron Walden performing arts school have successfully auditioned for the Cambridge pantomime of Robin Hood.

Pure Rhythm student Zoë Foulds will be joining the panto for her third year in a row, and has even landed the role of Jill this year.

Joining her will be Poppy Briner and Lulu legge.

Sue Raven, Pure Rhythm principal, said: “We always encourage the students to audition for productions as it is such a wonderful experience to be part of a show.

“I’m so pleased they have been chosen as they will simply love it and that now makes six years in a row that Pure Rhythm has been represented at a Cambridge panto.

“The girls will be juggling their school life with performances over the Christmas period but what a treat it is to be in a professional pantomime over Christmas - they’ll have such fun.”

The auditions were held in September over two weekends, with hundreds of hopefuls turning up wanting to be become a panto babe.

The pantomime, at the Cambridge Arts Theatre, runs until January 12. Call 01223 503333 for tickets.

• Pure Rhythm will also be putting on its own annual production next July, where all 75 students will be involved. This will be open to the public, a musical that will be suitable for all.

If you or your child are interested in joining Pure Rhythm, contact Sue via the website or by phone on 01799 501579.
