Pantomime performance gets local school pupils in the festive spirit

Pupils from Moulsecoomb Primary attend a performance of Pinocchio at the Attenborough Centre for Creative Arts.

Pupils from Moulsecoomb Primary School were treated to an afternoon of song, dance and festive fun at a pantomime performance on campus this afternoon (Wednesday 20 December).

A retelling of the well-known Pinocchio story, the show used aerial circus tricks, puppetry and music to bring the tale to life.

Nearly 50 year 4 and 5 pupils from Moulsecoomb Primary attended the show, the first in a two week run at the Attenborough Centre for Creative Arts on the University of Sussex campus.

 “We are delighted that our pupils have had an opportunity to get into the festive spirit” says Helen Smart, a Year 4 teacher at Moulsecoomb Primary. “The performance was fantastic and it was a great way to end the school term.”

The tickets for Moulsecoomb Primary were provided by the University to give local school children the opportunity to see the performance free of charge.  

“The best part of the show was all the singing along at the end” said Darcy (age 9). “I really enjoyed myself.”

The Amazing Adventures of Pinocchio is at the Attenborough Centre for Creative Arts until 6 January.
