This year's Christmas productions saw another fantastic Nativity, 'The Bethlehem Builders', performed by classes 1 and 2, and a great pantomime 'Cinderella' performed by class 3.
'The Bethlehem Builders' followed the nativity from the point of view of the builders in Bethlehem, who had so much to do preparing for all the extra visitors who were being asked to visit Bethlehem as part of the census. With rousing music and some accomplished acting, the story was well told and Mary and Joseph were soon safely ensconced in the stable for the birth of their son. Both performances were fantastic, with enthusiastic singing and confident delivery of lines. Well done to all involved.
'Cinderella' was another staff-penned pantomime performed by our older children. The ugly sisters and their mother were 'stunning' in both their outfits and in their acting! There was great singing, dancing and many fine performances from the children. Cinderella safely made it to the ball, thanks to her fairy godparents, and finally married her prince. A huge congratulations to the whole cast.
Thanks must also go to all the staff who worked hard behind the scenes writing and adapting scripts, rehearsing songs and dances and putting the finished productions together.
