" Performance, Pasty, Pint, Poltesco - Perfectissimo !! "
These were the words of Grade Ruan Primary School Headmaster Tom Harman, at the end of 3 succesful evening performances of the School Summer Play - " A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings"
After weeks and weeks of practising their lines the children delivered brilliant and memorable performances, culminating in a final night in front of an audience of well over a hundred people cheering, clapping and dancing through the evening.
The final night treated to us to a few "extras", guest performances from teachers, a sky lantern release and not to mention some very interesting sound effects from the PA system !
And the weather held up, all those anxious hour by hour internet checks to see when the rain would stop must have helped........
It was great for us to help the school by hosting this event, the orchard is such a great place and we had loads of positive feedback about using it more in the future for all sorts of events and activities - a Folk Festival ? Storytelling ? Hog Roast and Apple weekend ?
Please tell us what you think. We know it's a great spot and we'd like to know how we can help people enjoy it more
Oh, and don't forget to look out for next years School Play !!
