Visually impaired children meet Darlington Civic Theatre stars
PANTOMIME stars helped give a group of visually impaired children the VIP treatment this weekend.
The group of visually impaired youngsters from the Durham Support Group for Families with Visually Impaired Children met the pantomime cast at Darlington Civic Theatre and had a “touch tour” of the stage.
The youngsters got the chance to meet Sleeping Beauty stars Linda Lusardi, who plays the wicked fairy Carabosse, Zoe Birkett who plays Princess Beauty and handsome Prince William, played by Will Tudor, as well as panto dame, Phillip Meeks, and Phil Hitchcock who plays King Stephan.
Sleeping Beauty will run until Sunday.
Tickets cost between £13.50 and £21, with discounts available. To book contact the box office on 01325-486555 or visit darlington.gov.uk/arts
