What A Knight!

It’s that time of the year again where Y5 and Y6 are hard at work rehearsing for their production. This year’s production will be ‘What A Knight‘. The ticket reservation date has now passed meaning that tickets are now available for everyone on a first-come first-serve basis.

So what’s it all about…?

A castle full of colourful characters join in the fun, including precocious princesses, a talking dragon – and not forgetting Merlin and his magic mirror! When young squire Watt Cobblers is expelled from Knight School, he reluctantly becomes Merlin’s new apprentice. But trouble is never far away, and soon Camelot Castle collapses into chaos. Merlin has lost Excalibur, King Arthur’s daughters have been kidnapped and his brave knights have turned into chickens. Watt and his new found friends Dusty Dragon and wayward Princess Alice set off on the biggest quest of their lives. But can our unlikely heroes rescue the princesses, save Excalibur and defeat the evil Black Knight? The answers are found in this magical production, where everyone is guaranteed to sing a lot, dance a lot and laugh a lot… at Camelot!
