Granny Corbyn saves panto

Aldborough School’s Christmas Show has plenty of character crossover!

The key stage 2 children at Aldborough Primary School in North Norfolk put on a remarkable panto that saw the rotters King John and the Sheriff of Nottingham finally getting their comeuppance –thanks to one Granny Corbyn.

As is usual with the Aldborough School Christmas Show, there was considerable crossover confusion in terms of characters.

Robin Hood’s merry gang included Goldilocks and the three bears, one of whom was Paddington, as well as sundry wolves, Pinocchio, Jiminy Cricket, the Frog Prince and a pistol packing Little Red Riding Hood.

However, things looked distinctly dodgy for our heroes until Granny Corbyn came up with a rescue plan…. though whether it would have worked in real life is probably a moot point.

“It was a terrific show – the acting and costumes were outstanding,” says parent Mel White, whose daughter was in the show.  “Drama at Aldborough is so dynamic, and the kids really work hard and get so much out of it.”
