For the Friday morning performance a number of primary schools in the local area were invited to see the show. Carlton School pupils were amazed by the set design and costumes.

The pupils savoured the show and particularly enjoyed the performance of the King and Queen of Hearts. One student said: “My favourite part of the performance was when the Queen shouted off with his head as it made the audience laugh”.

After the show the primary schools had the opportunity to ask the cast any questions.

Pupils learnt about the production, rehearsal and the overall performance process.
