Auditions and play rehearsals started at the end of the Easter term for the Year 5 Show which took place shortly after the long weekend at the beginning of May.
A demanding but extremely entertaining production entitled ‘The X Factory’, based on the talent show on British TV but set in St Dithers School.
Following a school inspection the school had been rated ‘average’ and was in danger of being closed down. Although the school was taken over by a new head teacher and staff, the St Dithers' pupils and teachers fight back.
A complicated script, with fast flying jokes and abundant use of word play, was performed brilliantly by the talented actors among the Year 5 cast.
Their acting, singing and dancing were enjoyed by all and deemed to be ‘outstanding’ by the audiences of children and parents alike. Congratulations to the children and teachers for the wonderful performances.
