A recent production of a children’s classic revealed the darker side of a much loved story as children from Cundall Manor School took to the stage.
A select group of 14 and 15 year old actors performed at the Galtres Centre, Easingwold in front of an appreciative audience as they brought to life Frances Hodgeson Burnett’s The Secret Garden.
Director and Head of Drama at the school, Liz Vile, said: “A memorable and exciting night was had by all who participated and attended ‘The Secret Garden’.
Adding: “The cast worked so hard and produced a slick and confident performance that was full of amazing individual performances. The night was enjoyed by all and I am so very proud of all the students who gave up their time to make this production the success that it was.”
The Secret Garden is the classic Edwardian tale of Mary Lennox, a young orphan girl who is sent from Indian to live with her reclusive Uncle in Misselthwaite Manor, an isolated Stately Home in Yorkshire. But all is not what it seems at Misselthwaite.
The annual Upper School production was well received on social media with one parent stating it was a “thoroughly enjoyable show with some amazing performances. Well done all those involved.”
The production was the start of a series of performances at the Galtres Centre, with youngsters from the school taking to the stage over the next week.
