A COLOURFUL cast of primary school pupils took part in a drama workshop at Walton Girls’ High School last week, which culminated in a performance of Finding Nemo on Friday.

The more than 50 children, aged between seven and 11, spent the week developing their skills in singing, dancing and acting.

Teaching assistant Kim Pell said: “I’m very impressed by them. Some of the skills and acting quality is great.

“And the progression they have made is tremendous. I can’t believe some of them are only seven-years-old.”

The children, who created their own costumes, worked hard throughout the week to perfect their performance for family and friends.

Director Matthew Hewitt said: “We have had a wonderful week and the kids have worked tremendously hard.”

And all the hard work was worth it as the performance went swimmingly.

Kim added: “The performance at the end of the week was absolutely superb. The students all worked very hard to put on a wonderful performance.”

The next summer workshop, which will be based on Les Misrables, will start on Monday, August 15 and will be specifically for 11 to 18-year-olds.

It costs £65 to attend. For more information contact Kim on 07787757771.
