There were proud parents galore and hardly a dry eye in the house as the pupils of Kinglassie Primary School put on sterling performances of ‘Aladdin’ and the nativity.

And all the hours of rehearsals, learning of lines and preparing costumes brought standing ovations at both performances for cast and staff alike, proving that school pantomimes are still as popular as ever.

Children of all ages from across the school took part in their interpretation of the classic ‘Aladdin’, with main characters Kai Montador (10) as Aladdin and Rebecca Mason (11) performing the role of Jasmine.

It may have been a far cry and a long way from the famous panto’s origins when it was first dramatised back in 1788 at the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, but there certainly wasn’t any less commitment and gusto from these performing Kinglassie youngsters some 200 years later.

The packed shows rounded off a busy year for the school, which is already planning its next performances.
