“I just can’t wait to get back performing panto at The Brindley,” he said. “And I can’t wait to see familiar faces in the cast, crew and audience.

One of Halton’s most sparkling young talents, Charlotte won our first ever Halton’s Got Talent, as a teenager with an operatic performance which astounded the judges.

She performed for a year in Cyprus as a singer/dancer in a touring musical theatre company and has appeared twice at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall alongside Britain’s Got Talent finalist Beau Dermott.

In 2014, Charlotte was cast as a principal vocalist on board the prestigious Silversea World Cruise and then reprised this role on the final voyage of the Silver Cloud vessel performing a variety of Musical Theatre, Pop, Rock, Classical and Opera to audiences on the high seas.

While on board she performed her own cabaret show “Musicals and Mischief” comprising of classic and contemporary comedy musical theatre pieces. Charlotte’s one woman show “An Audience With Charlotte Dacia” was received with critical acclaim at The Brindley Theatre for two years running and is one of her proudest achievements.

Charlotte is also a vocal coach and dance teacher for Art In Motion dance and Theatre school, Runcorn where she passes on her passion for performing to her students whilst continuing to audition and work in the industry. In addition, she is a keen long distance runner, running several marathons a year for various charities.
