Now they are dancing together in the WA Ballet’s La Fille mal gardee (The wayward daughter), opening at His Majesty’s Theatre on Friday.

Oliver (10), of Hocking, Carys (8), of Woodvale, and Jeryn (8), of Heathridge, are among 17 town children in the light-hearted ballet about a ‘wayward daughter’ whose mother tries to interfere in her love life.

About 240 children auditioned for the show, which is on stage until September 20.
