Norwich High School For Girls students have been bringing some pantomime fun to local primary schools and the Salvation Army.
Snow White, the Wizard of Oz, and Jack and the Beanstalk were among the shows in the school’s repertoire, with each production
being written and produced by a different group of year eight and 12 pupils at Norwich High School for Girls.
On Wednesday the pantomimes were performed at primary schools in the Norwich area, and on Thursday one of the groups performed Snow White at the Salvation Army base in St Giles Street.
Owain Hall, head of lower school, said: “The girls have been working with some of our year 12 girls to write and produce the pantomimes over the past six weeks.
“The work forms part of our personal social health and education lessons at school – they learn about the importance of team work and responsibility and it’s a fun way to get everyone in the Christmas spirit.”
He added: “We have been running this activity for over 30 years now and the pantomimes are always very well received.”
Bignold Primary School enjoyed watching The Wizard of Oz on Wednesday, while Jack and the Beanstalk was performed at Cringleford Primary School.
Pantomania was performed at Drayton Community Infant School, Snow White at Larkman Primary School, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves at Avenue Junior School, Cinderella at St Williams Primary School, Happily Ever After at West Earlham Infant School, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at Nightingale First School.
Audiences appreciate Thursday’s show of Snow White at the Salvation Army in St Giles Street.
