Boswells School performs a modern twist on the traditional pantomime ‘Cinderella’

More than 200 students at The Boswells Schools were involved with this year's whole school production, a modern twist on the traditional pantomime ‘Cinderella’.

With `90 students performing each night, the mix of acting, singing, dancing, gymnastics and live music utilised skills from many different disciplines.

The students taking part were from all year groups (Years 7 to 13) and had been rehearsing since the beginning of December.

The cast were honoured to have Chelmsford City Council Deputy Mayor Jon de Vries and Deputy Mayoress Maria de Vries watch and support the production on its opening night.

Mr de Vries said: "The quality of performance was as high as ever, not just from the main roles but also from the chorus, who put energy and passion in to every routine."

Paul Butler, Head of Performing & Creative Arts at The Boswells School, said: "The cast, crew and staff worked really hard to bring this ambitious production together over the last 11 weeks and it has been a real team effort.

"The skills this type of production encourages the students to develop will serve them well and it has been a very exciting and enjoyable process.

"The many talents of our students were put to good use and we are blessed with such a large number of students who want to get involved."

He added: We were delighted to welcome the Deputy Mayor and Mayoress. It means a lot to the students when people outside of the school community come to support them."
