Pupils at the Paragon School have put on a show with a difference.
They performed Blanche Neige et les Vingt Nains – a version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, with extra dwarfs and completely in French.
The Year 5 and 6 production kept the audience entertained, with narrators helping those struggling to keep up with the French.
School spokeswoman Charlotte Thursz said: “Fathers and mothers clapped, shouted, whistled, hooted and beamed with pride, as their little theatre performers took a bow and waved to the audience before exiting the stage.
“It was a wonderful and engaging performance of the traditional fairy tale with a few twists here and there – and all performed in French.”
Meanwhile, schoolchildren managed to dodge the showers to complete an open-air performance of a Shakespeare classic.
Pupils from Kingswood School put on a five-night production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Hywel Jones and Luke Jackson shared the part of Bottom, with Jack Hurring, George Robertson, Mimi Templar-Gay and Sophia Marshall taking on the roles of the four lovers. The fairies were led by Martha Overyender, while Tom Lechmere and Anna Maskell played Oberon and Puck.
Sarah Smith, from the school’s marketing department, said: “The performances from the entire cast were superb.”
