PUPILS from Ewloe Green Primary School have thrilled their parents with a "wonderful" performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream at Theatr Clwyd.

The show went live on Wednesday afternoon watched by more than 100 parents and staff.

The scene set in an enchanted forest included giant talking trees and fairies who take control of the main characters.

Headteacher Ruth Dyas said the children had been rehearsing for four weeks and had help from a professional artist with the scenery.

"The performance was amazing, the children always rise to the occasion and they did really well," said Ms Dyas.

"They did a rehearsal in the morning and that's the first time the have been to the theatre.

"I'm really thrilled that the children have done so well and we're all very proud of them," she said.

Carole George who is nanna to Thomas Muckley, 10, who sang in the choir, said she thought the show was "brilliant".

"We thoroughly enjoyed it and I couldn't stop crying," said Mrs George.

"I'm very proud of my grandson who sang in the choir and it was a lovely moment," she said.

Karen McQueen said she was "very proud of her daughter Isabelle, 10, who performed in the play.

"I was really surprised at the whole performance, the set and the music," said Mrs McQueen, adding, "the way it was put together looked so professional."

Laura Atherton's whose son Harry, 8, played Demetrius said the show was "fabulous".

"The school has done wonderfully to pull together a production of this scale and we're all very proud of them," said Mrs Atherton.

Harry Atherton's nanny Julie Tickell said the show was "fantastic".

"It was pure joy and they made a top class performance look effortless," she said.
