80 Pupils Perform In Junior Production Of Arabian Nights

Published Wednesday 3rd of July 2019 01:15:35 PM

In suitably warm, sultry weather conditions, 80 pupils were involved in last week’s Junior production of Arabian Nights. These included Year 9 ‘core’ Drama pupils, who entertained the audience as they arrived with performances of street theatre - created with the help of the Natural Theatre company. The cast then impressed almost full houses with their evocative storytelling and slick physical ensemble work. Stories ranged from the well-known ‘Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves’ to the less familiar ‘Envious Sisters’, from the comic ‘The Little Beggar’ to the gruesome ‘The Wife Who Wouldn’t Eat’. A range of theatrical devices were used to bring the tales to life – including Bunraku and shadow puppetry in ‘The Story of Es Sindibad’ and whole cast choral speaking in ‘How Abu Hassan Broke Wind’. Mrs Nash, Mr Harding & Mrs Ward would like to congratulate the whole cast and all the crew on creating an excellent show and thank them all for their hard work.
