AUDIENCES were transported to the mystical world of King Arthur and his Camelot court.
Youngsters from Brandeston Hall - the preparatory school for Framlingham College - recently trod the boards for the junior production of What a Knight.
Amidst a revolving stage, impressive costumes and creatively painted scenery, 60 boys and girls from years three, four and five retold the story of kidnapped princesses, bold knights, lost swords, magical mirrors and talking dragons.
A 15 piece band, made up from musicians in years six and seven, accompanied all the songs and scene changes, pulling together 80 minutes of fun, colour and amusement in the school’s Rowley Hall.
Youngsters Alfie Franklin (Watt), Jessica Owles (Princess Alice), Freddie Steward (The Black Knight), Toby Nicholass (Merlin) and Dillon O’Sullivan (Dusty, The Dragon) performed and sang their way through the lead roles.
They were supported by children in years four and five who each had a speaking part and by those in year three, who were in fine voice as the chorus.
A new music and drama studio at Brandeston Hall is near completion.
