A prince, a princess and the knotty problem of a mysterious monster in a magical maze…there was a real spirit of adventure as our Year 3 and 4 pupils took to the stage with their production of a new musical in November.
Theseus and the Minotaur – based on the Greek myth about the monster hidden in a Cretan labyrinth – was specially created by our music teacher Andy Collis.
And audiences for the show, which was presented in the Senior Drama Studio, enjoyed the fresh take on the adventures of hero Theseus, helpful princess Ariadne and the half man half bull Minotaur, hidden in a labyrinth under the palace of scheming King Minos.
“I wanted to give the children a new challenge and the story of Theseus was perfect for telling through song,” said Mr Collis.
“We are delighted that our audiences enjoyed the show so much and found so much to appreciate in a production that took one of the classic myths and told it with a contemporary twist.”
