Little Voices student Max Moorhouse has landed his first role in the West End.

Max will be part of four alternating teams of youngsters that will feature in new show the Railway Children.

His numerous ensemble roles will see him star alongside actress Caroline Harker and comedian Sean Hughes.

Max has been with the Little Voices performing arts organisation in Putney since 2010 when he joined at the age of five.

Little Voices principal Ashlea Pearson said: "it is no surprise Max has secured this amazing role as he has a huge talent and we are so proud of him.

"Max’s natural talent flourished here. So much so that there is now no stopping him."

The Railway Children opened at the King’s Cross Theatre in January this year, with the production donating £1 per ticket in support of the Railway Children Charity which aims to help homeless and runaway children around the world.
