The students performed to a full house of family and friends, staff and students as well as invited guests including Newport AM Rosemary Butler. The appreciative response of the audience showed how much fun they had watching the performance.
This year art students made the Panto even more special by providing the backdrop and special props such as a giant ‘poisoned’ apple and the wicked Queen Ivy’s crown.
Highlights of the Panto were the famous line dancing dwarves along with comedic performances from Zac Man and the wicked Queen. The secret of a successful Panto is when the audience can see the cast having fun and they did – oh yes they did!
Lecturer Alice Butler-Bright said: “The students worked very hard rehearsing and the effort they put in showed on the day. We are also grateful and pleased that the art department were involved – their scenery and props were excellent.”
