Pupils in Key Stage Two at St Andrew’s Primary School have recently conquered the ‘The Lion King’. The play was performed in the hall of St Andrew’s School and was shown to audiences on 22nd - 24th March 2016 to raise money for the school and to keep their drama tradition going. The cast of ‘The Lion King’ dressed up as meerkats, flamingos, hyenas, gazelles and many more. Charlie Stoodley (Simba) thought that the best part of the production were the amazing costumes.

Audiences were blown away into the boiling African savannah on Tuesday 22nd March to Thursday 24th March 2016 as they watched St Andrew’s production of ‘The Lion King’. The show was put on because every year the school is known for its performances and costumes. The show lasted approximately one and a half hours yet it took the children many months to practise and to get everything pitch perfect.

From 22nd to the 24th March 2016, children of St Andrew’s Primary School, Soham performed the well known musical ‘The Lion King’. The pupils were determined to raise money for the school, carry on the drama tradition of the school and most of all to have fun. The story goes that a jealous uncle kills the King and tells the young heir to run away. The child then returns to become king. Ryan Rodrigues (young Simba) told children that his favourite part was when he did a handspring before Faith Bird (young Nala) pinned him. Charlie Stoodley (Simba), Kayleigh Watkinson (Nala), Ben Brooks (Timon), Elesha Coleman (Pumba), Jacob Murfet (Mufasa), Maisy Lowe (Zazu), Casey East (Rafiki) and Andzela Markunaite (Scar) were some of the other lucky pupils who had main parts.
