FOURTEEN budding stars of the stage from across Hampshire will appear in smash hit Nativity the Musical when it visits Mayflower Theatre for the first time in December.

The youngsters, pupils at schools across the county, were among hundreds to audition for a part in the show, which will star Love Island’s Dani Dyer.

Fireniece Stafford, Raela-Belle Farndell, Jessie Tennant, Isabel Hartley, Gretel Bradwell, Isla-Faye Wren, Elodie Dabreo, Grace Curtis, Alexander Ball, Max Ivemey, George Vidler, Samuel Wyatt, Leo Cropley and Leo Bailey will play the students of Oakmoor School for one week only from December 3 to 7.

Debbie Isitt, Creator and Director of Nativity, said: ‘This year’s auditions have been fantastic and we are excited to have some brand new talent.

“We are beyond thrilled with the talent in Hampshire and we can’t wait for the children and Cracker the dog to create a magical family experience with plenty of sparkle and shine at Mayflower Theatre.”

Every child in every school has one Christmas wish, to star in a Nativity, and at St Bernadette’s School they’ve decided to mount a musical version! Join teacher Mr Maddens and his crazy assistant Mr Poppy as they struggle with hilarious children, and a whole lot of sparkle and shine to make everyone’s Christmas wish come true.

Featuring all of the favourite sing-a-long songs from the smash-hit films including Sparkle and Shine, Nazareth and One Night One Moment., Nativity The Musical promises to be the perfect feel-good comedy for all the family.

Dani Dyer, the 2018 Love Island winner, radio and TV host and daughter of Eastenders actor Danny Dyer, reprises the role of Polly Parker and will be joined on stage by musical theatre stars Scott Garnham, Ashleigh Gray and Scott Paige.
