Budding singers, actors and dancers took to the stage for a one-off show as they put on a musical in a day.

Budding singers, actors and dancers took to the stage for a one-off show as they put on a musical in a day.

Pupils from Broadhembury and Farway primary schools learnt the script and songs to perform to parents.

The musical was based on the Stone Age, which the pupils have been learning about in class. In the show, the children travelled through the time period in their supersonic time machine, singing songs, including the energetic Stone Age Rocks and the dramatic hunting song.

Teacher Clare Salter wrote the play, using the music of Peter Kyrke-Smith.

Headteacher Katie Gray said: “Everyone played an active part and they were very proud to perform it to the parents at the end of just one day.”
