Lower school production Twisted Tales surprised and delighted the sell-out audience with a new perspective on some of our best loved fairytales.
Created by the pupils and drama teacher Mrs Alison Moffatt over the course of a weekend, the show asked whether we really understood the motivations of the well-known characters. Was the wolf merely asking the three little pigs for some sugar for his granny’s birthday cake?
Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and The Three Little Pigs all benefited from the pupils’ comical story makeovers.
The pupils thoroughly enjoyed their role in creating as well as performing the show, with Caitlin Cutts summing up the enthusiasm of the cast in rehearsals:
Everybody wants it, everybody wants to be a team. We’re all working together to use everybody’s ideas.
BBC School reporters go behind the scenes
The play was one of the stories covered by budding journalists who took part in the worldwide BBC School Report project.
Aidan, Charlotte, Jake, Sanah and Max reported on Twisted Tales during a day on which pupils made their own news reports for a real audience.
