It’s taken three terms worth of preparation and the hard work paid off when children from Colehill First School staged a beauty of a summer show.
The youngsters from the school’s Year 3 and 4 drama club delivered their own interpretation of the classic Beauty and the Beast.
From writing the script to creating the scenery, this blockbuster of a production was entirely staged and produced by the children themselves.
Headteacher, Andrew Turrall, said: “We are all incredibly proud of our very talented children who put on an amazing show for us all to enjoy.
“The pupils performed brilliantly and they thoroughly entertained the rest of the school with their memorable characterisation.
“A lot of hard work and dedication went into making the show such a success and I take my hat off to them.”
The year 3 and year 4 drama club meets every week after school.
It is led and inspired by Colehill’s English subject leader, Ruth Everton, who has helped to guide the children since January on creating Beauty and the Beast.
But it was the children themselves who led the project.
The club’s talented writers created their own interpretation of the traditional French fairy tale.
And even all of the scenery and props for the show were made by the children who, in addition, delivered top acting performances.
Beauty and the Beast was performed to a packed audience in the school hall.
