It’s the turn of Preston’s Carol May School of Dance to take over the city’s Charter Theatre this weekend.

Every three years the Lune Street academy stages a show featuring students from all their classes, aged from two and a half upwards.

So expect everything from tap-dancing hoedowns to Barbie dolls; musical excerpts from Wicked and Matilda; and the young actors performing various scenes from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The pre-school classes make their stage debut dancing and singing to Teddy Bears Picnic while the vocational students perform the showstopping Black and Gold from New Fame.

And no-one should miss the dads’ production of Single Ladies!

This Spotlight show also raises funds for the Cystic Fibrosis and Vine House charities. Performances are Friday to Sunday, with Saturday and Sunday matinees.
