Stamford schoolboy Jack Firkins, 12, to play a major role in production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
A schoolboy is about to tread the boards in one of the leading roles of a stage adaptation of the Ian Fleming and Sherman Brothers’ spectacular, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
Twelve-year old Jack Firkins from Stamford will play Jeremy Potts, the son of the loveable but eccentric inventor Caractacus Potts in a production by Peterborough Operatic and Dramatic Society (PODS) at The Cresset in Peterborough from Tuesday, October 22 to Saturday, October 26.
Jack, who is also a pupil at Little Voices drama group, auditioned alongside dozens of other children for the role earlier in the year and has been tirelessly rehearsing with PODS to perfect his part alongside the full adult company, a big children’s ensemble and a group of dogs.
Evening performances start at 7.30pm and there will be 2.30pm matinees on the Thursday and Saturday.
