Teacher Lara Quinn said: “It was a great success. The singing was exceptional with many children singing solos.

“It all came together really well and lots of people said it was the best performance in years.”

Miss Quinn praised all the children for their efforts and wished to thank Jodie Hatton, the YMCA and SADLOS (Scarborough and District Light Operatic Society) for the generous loan of costumes.

More than 30 pupils took part and Miss Quinn said the production kept them all engaged and boosted their confidence.
