Christmas is coming! Hundreds of children queue for panto roles

It may only be September but preparations for Christmas are well underway at the Kings Theatre in Southsea.

Hundreds of children have been auditioning today for the annual pantomime, which this year is Snow White.

30 youngsters were successful and now have their work cut out as rehearsals begin in November.

They're split into groups of 10 and will appear in every third show over the festive season.
