I was fortunate enough to got to Brede School’s performance of the Snow Queen. The main characters did really well and the Snow Queen and her entourage made one feel cold, the songs sung interpreted what was going on very well and the singers were word perfect. The scenery was very inventive and magical, as were the costumes. The stage props children did really well putting every thing in the right place. The pupils orchestrated the whole event and the Head mistress said she was very proud of them all. The School Staff and children must have worked extremely hard to pull off such a fantastic show. I thoroughly enjoyed it. So very well done to you all.
