YOUNGSTERS from a Scarborough school enjoyed some fairytale fun after putting on a real show during a special performance.

The children from Seamer and Irton School are currently taking part in a production of Tatty Bogle which reveals the adventures of a friendly scarecrow.

The performance includes children from the school’s foundation classes as well as Year One and Year Two pupils, with Joe Gadd taking on the role as Tatty Bogle himself.

Their first show took place for parents yesterday, with further performances today and tomorrow.

Teacher Sue Knowles said she was delighted with their efforts and praised the high standard of their acting and singing ability.

She said: “The children have been phenomenal and have worked really hard.

“The whole performance has been put together in just two weeks and they have been fantastic learning the words and singing the songs brilliantly.

“They have been a credit to themselves and the school and a special mention must go to Joe Gadd, who plays Tatty Bogle, because he really holds it all together.

“The first performance was a huge success and I’m sure they will continue during the next two shows to give a wonderful performance.”
