Pupils of Awliscombe C of E Primary School take centre stage in Twelfth Night.

Awliscombe C of E Primary School pupils were not afraid to take on the challenge of performing the classic Shakespearean play - Twelfth Night.

The story follows the lives of identical twins, Sebastian and Viola, who survive a shipwreck, but neither of them know the other is still alive.

By differing means, they both end up at Count Orsino’s court, and romance, intrigue, trickery and great confusion soon follow.

Julia Thwaites (Viola), Isabel Sutcliffe (Countess Olivia), Owen Barribal (Count Orsino), Ellis Baker ( Sir Toby Belch), Guy Susevee (Malvolio) and Kirsten Hawkins (Feste) delivered fine performances - successfully bringing to life this ambitious challenge.
