School’s magical panto success
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.”
