A group of our Year 8 pupils had a fabulous visit to see Cinderella at Norwich Theatre Royal; oh no they didn’t! Yes they did!
As part of their Drama lessons last term the pupils were studying the features of a pantomime along with acting the various parts. It was the perfect opportunity as a final year trip to visit and make comparisons.
There was laughter in abundance at the usual slapstick comedy and the necessary audience participation which makes a pantomime so much fun. This was embraced not just by the pupils but by Mr Crossley, Mrs Daniels and Mrs Williams as well.
Some of the children were surprised the ugly step sisters were played by females but enjoyed their characters nonetheless. Year 8 and staff left the theatre feeling energised and in agreement Buttons was their favourite character. Where did he get his energy from?!
