The talented young performers in a primary school’s sell-out summer pantomime production have been praised for their professional and enthusiastic approach, which left audiences “amazed” by their abilities.

David Brook, Year 6 teacher at Sir Robert Hitcham’s Primary School in Framlingham said the production of Amazing Aladdin was the best he had been part of in 28 years of teaching.

“We were very lucky to have had such a talented group of kinds this year,” he said.

“To see the children perform with such confidence was very gratifying as a teacher and thoroughly enjoyable to watch.”

The show, which played to sold out audiences over three nights at the 240 capacity Framlingham College Theatre, was one of the first school performances of the newly written version of the classic tale.
