A YOUNG Stockton Heath starlet is set to tread the boards in Liverpool this Easter.

Evie Burton-Baddeley, a pupil at Lymm High School, impressed the director of the Epstein Theatre’s production of Aladdin and won a place in the show which will feature Emmerdale’s Curtis Stacey – Alex Moss in the soap opera.

Eleven-year-old Evie, of Whitefield Road, starts rehearsals for the show this week.

Mum Carolyn said: “Evie was extremely shocked but delighted to have got through and can’t wait for her first appearance.”
