SAINT Martin’s school hall was transported to ancient Arabia last month as girls performed an adaptation of ‘Arabian Nights’, with the help of guest director Kirsteen Wray.
The production took place on two nights to a full hall and was imaginatively performed in the round, enabling the audience to feel at the heart of the production.
The adaptation was written by Dominic Cooke and was first presented by the Young Vic Theatre. The stories told included Ali Baba, Little Beggar and Envious Sisters.
Mrs Plain-Jones, producer and drama teacher, said: “The ensemble nature of the production has introduced a new dimension to the work of the drama department”.
“The girls involved in the production found it exciting, fun and enjoyable. The audience thoroughly enjoyed the performances and were amazed at the level of talent on show.”
