Hakuna matata is West Coats way
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!”
