Isla is no stranger to the Oxford Playhouse stage as last year she appeared there in a production of 'Fiddler On The Roof'. Isla has also performed the role of Molly in the musical, 'Annie'.
Sam appeared in pantomime at Chipping Norton Theatre last year and is delighted to be performing in this year's panto at the Oxford Playhouse. Sam will also be appearing as Fleance in 'Macbeth' with Shakespeare's Rose Theatre at Blenheim Palace this summer.
Jasmine appeared in the Oxford Playhouse pantomime 'Jack & The Beanstalk' 2017/18 and is looking forward to returning there for this year's panto 'Beauty & The Beast'.
Jan appeared as a Pirate in last year's pantomime 'Dick Whittington & his Cat' at Oxford Playhouse and is very excited to be returning there this year for 'Beauty & The Beast'.
Emily has appeared in pantomime for the last two years at Chipping Norton Theatre (oh yes she has).
She is delighted to be joining the cast of 'Beauty & The Beast' at the Oxford Playhouse this year.
Tino recently appeared as Dodger in the musical, 'Oliver!'.
He is thrilled to have been offered his first professional pantomime 'Beauty & The Beast' at Oxford Playhouse and is looking forward to entertaining everyone over the festive period.
All take part in singing, dance and drama classes at West Oxfordshire Academy of Performing Arts - a children's theatre school in Witney, Oxfordshire.
We are very proud and excited that they are joining the cast of 'Beauty and the Beast' - this year's pantomime at The Oxford Playhouse.

West Oxfordshire Academy of Performing Arts is an independent Theatre School for children aged 4-16 years, which operates at weekends during the standard academic term.
Our classes are led by experienced tutors whose skills in working with young people enable our students to develop at their own pace, and encourage them to reach their true potential.
Providing quality tuition in the three disciplines of Singing, Dance and Drama, our classes ensure that your child receives the individual attention he or she deserves.
We promote a positive environment - where students have fun as they celebrate their individuality and achievements.
Working as part of a team, students are encouraged to be creative and become multi-disciplined, all-round performers.
At WOAPA, we take pride in going that extra mile. We offer fantastic additional opportunities to our students and have assisted our students to appear in local productions, professional stage shows (locally and national tours) in film, television and advertisements.
