Year 5 and 6 pupils from Ninfield Primary School performed their end of year production of Aladdin Trouble to a packed crowd at Ninfield Memorial Hall on Thursday July 16.

The performance, based on the original pantomime, was full of humour, singing and dancing and the characters kept the audience enthralled throughout.

All the young actors and actresses delivered their lines brilliantly and the singing was of a very high standard with a number of solos.

Aladdin was played by Charlie Keen and Jasmine was played by Hannah Cruse. They came on at the end in true panto style in their ‘wedding’ outfits to enthusiastic applause.

Special mention must also go to Hugo Holmes-Bower who played the evil Abanazar very convincingly, Ashleigh Potter who enchanted the audience as the genie and Ollie Tomasetti who embraced the comical role of Widow Twanky.

The Widow’s two sons Wishy and Washy added to the fun.

There were a number of less conventional characters such as Abanazar’s side kick, Wantu, played by Max DePeyer with great comedy timing.

Aladdin wins the day of course, regaining the lamp and releasing the Genie who performed a wonderful air guitar solo to rapturous applause.

The final scene was the wedding scene, where all the children sang a lovely three- part song called ‘Wedding Procession’ and the audience were clapping and cheering at the final curtain.

There was great audience participation throughout with people hissing and booing.

Year 6 teacher Miss Watson said: “I am so proud of all the children - they really pulled out all the stops to create an uplifting and fun evening of entertainment.”

The school is particularly grateful to the parents who have supported the production, especially with the wonderful outfits.
