TWO talented Sidmouth actors are among a group of youngsters performing in a production in Exeter next week.

Tom Stokes, 13 and 15-year-old Alexander Holme will be appearing in Through The Wardrobe, a new play by Exeter playwright Natalie McGrath.

A group of children become lost backstage in this fantastical adventure, inspired by the contents of Exeter Northcott's wardrobe store at Emmanuel Hall.

Joining the Wardrobe Mistress in a search for the golden thread she needs to finish her costumes, they enter an imaginary world populated by strange creatures, including pirates, dancing pumpkins and giant weaving looms.

The production features performers from the Northcott Young Company and Northcott Community Company, including Tom and Alexander.

The play takes place on Monday at Rougemont Gardens, Exeter from 6.30pm. Tickets are £5 and are available through the box office (01392) 493493. For more information visit www.exeternorthcott.co.uk.
