Pirates of The Curry Bean. A wonderful production by Burlington Junior School Year 6
I think we all know that there is a lot of raw talent out there, but exactly how much only gets measured when a school is brave enough to put around 90 year 6 children into a complicated production. Auditions were held and fairness played a role as the major 12 parts are played by different children each of the two nights. The scenery and props were truly brilliant and the simplicity of what was done was mesmerising. There was humour, a few forgotten lines ( but over 90 minutes hardly any), bravado, great acting, great delivery and great singing. The teachers have clearly put a lot into this production and it showed. Local residents from a home for the elderly were invited, parents, friends and importantly children in all the other classes. There were so many good performances that one could not , even being unbiased, pick any special one because they all were. the audience loved the pirates, loved the dancers, laughed at the jokes. A few photographs just to remind us what a great evening it was.
