School’s mag­i­cal panto suc­cess

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

There were four per­for­mances of the two and half hour show over the course of two days, which in­cluded see­ing chil­dren be­ing sprayed with shav­ing foam, wa­ter sprayed at the au­di­ence and a magic car­pet.

One cast mem­ber was in­jured two weeks be­fore the show which meant their stand in had to learn lines in that time.

The end of the show saw sad farewells to those leav­ing the cast of the panto, who will be mov­ing on.

The en­tire per­for­mance was ded­i­cated to Jenny Mor­ton, who had made a great con­tri­bu­tion to the school as mu­si­cal di­rec­tor of the an­nual pan­tomimes and re­vues.

Par­ent Natalie Timotheou said: “It was a fan­tas­tic pro­duc­tion. Tra­di­tion met mod­ern day life in a show that was fit for all. It had me in stitches – es­pe­cially the Dirty Danc­ing in­spired chore­og­ra­phy ex­e­cuted bril­liantly by the two male char­ac­ters, Abanazar and Eric the Jug­gler – the re­sult of a hi­lar­i­ous love po­tion mixup.

“The props were great. The magic car­pet in par­tic­u­lar had us amazed – the amount of hard work and thought that went into the pro­duc­tion was as­tound­ing. Re­ally im­pres­sive pro­duc­tion. It’s so lovely to see chil­dren, par­ents and staff all work­ing to­gether like that and do­ing some­thing so great in the com­mu­nity. Makes me proud to be a par­ent at the school.”
