The ‘Wild Things’ of St Edmund’s Junior School burst onto the stage, breaking through a sealed door into an abandoned set and staging their own version of ‘Where the Wild Things Are’, a 1963 children’s picture book by American writer and illustrator Maurice Sendak. Fantastic use was made of the old props from the Oliver set, and the audience immediately felt excited to be a part of such a brilliant show. From the start we were treated to interpretative dance routines to modern pop classics that had the audience moving to the beat along with the actors, physical theatre which included the actors pretending to be props, and an array of colourful costumes and accessories. The eleven cast members, ably supported by four stagecrew and of course our very own Aimee Walker-Reid, did an amazing job of which they should all be very proud. The whole school enjoyed the performance on Friday afternoon, and we had a full house on Saturday with many pupils opting to come and experience it again. Huge congratulations to everyone involved for such a brilliant production.
