Hakuna matata is West Coats way

Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations - Jonathan Ged­des

West Coats Pri­mary pupils were roar­ing re­cently, as they tack­led a Dis­ney clas­sic in their school show.

The young­sters in the school’s mu­si­cal theatre group per­formed the Lion King, the smash hit film and mu­si­cal.

And au­di­ences were thrilled at the two pro­duc­tions by the group, with pop­u­lar songs in­clud­ing Can You Feel The Love Tonight, Cir­cle of Life and Hakuna Matata per­formed.

A school spokes­woman was de­lighted at how the shows had gone.

She said: “Our mu­si­cal theatre club were thrilled to put on two per­for­mances of The Lion King to very ap­pre­cia­tive au­di­ences at the be­gin­ning of June.

“The club was run by Mrs Telfer, Miss Mathews, Mrs Richard­son and Mrs Smith and met on a weekly ba­sis.

“They started prac­tis­ing for the show in March and our build­ing was filled with the sound of some very well known songs.

“It was a real team ef­fort as Miss Bar­rie, her class and the pri­mary seven chil­dren pro­vided art work which gave a lovely back­drop for the ac­tion.

“The per­for­mances show­cased the chil­dren’s singing and per­form­ing tal­ents de­vel­oped through the guid­ance of Mrs Telfer who re­cently per­formed the lead role, her­self, in a pro­duc­tion of Evita.

“It was won­der­ful to see how the se­nior pupils have grown in con­fi­dence.

“Two of the per­form­ers Ge­or­gia Smith and Char­lotte Wat­son com­mented: “The Lion King was the best per­for­mance ever and that. It was so much fun to do!”
