TEENAGE dancing sensations Harry Carter and Morgan Chambers have seen off competition from 800 other boys to land a role in Matthew Bourne’s Lord of the Flies.

The 15-year-olds made headlines recently after being offered places on a dance and musical theatre course at three of the country’s top colleges – Bird College, Laine Theatre Arts and Performers.

And after wowing producers at auditions, the pair will now star at Manchester’s The Lowry, from Wednesday to Saturday April 2 to 5.

St Bede’s pupil Harry said: “I started dancing around three years ago and it was a bit weird at first because people think boys shouldn’t dance.”

Morgan, who has been dancing for eight years and attends Saint Wilfrid’s, said: “I used to play football because my dad was a semi-professional. Then on holiday I was talking to a woman about how her daughter dances. I said I would like to try it. That was eight years ago.”
