Children at St John’s School took to the stage for a reimagining of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream last week.

Malcolm Sircom’s musical play Dream On was performed by the theatre club from Years Five and Six to an enthusiastic audience.

Rebecca Colwill, the head of junior school, said it was a real team effort and everyone pulled together.

She added: “The students deserve every bit of their congratulations from the appreciative audience and, hopefully, we will see more of these budding actors in the future.”
