The nativity tale told from the perspective of a weary innkeeper saw scores of Suffolk pre-preparatory pupils take to the stage for three near sell-out performances held recently.
The Queen’s House production of the Christmas story featured a total of 87 young singers and dancers who “rose to the occasion for every performance”.
Jan King, headteacher at the school, said: “All the children worked hard to learn their parts and they put on a great performance on all three days which was enjoyed by parents, grandparents and other friends.”
Queen’s House, which is the pre-preparatory school of Woodbridge School, chose to tell the traditional tale of Christ’s birth from the perspective of a weary innkeeper who was deprived of his sleep by the baby Jesus’s many visitors.
“The story was superbly narrated, the singing filled the hall and the acting and dancing brought the stage to life,” said a spokesman for the school.
