The last week of the Spring term saw Haddenham Community Junior School's production of 'The Lion King' delighting full-house audiences with a truly fabulous production.

"When we decided on staging such a complex and sophisticated show, I was a little curious about what the end result was going to be like, but that end result was simply spectacular!" enthused Head Teacher, Andy Leach.

The incredible production proved to be a roaring triumph and saw pupils of all year groups donning their stunning costumes and taking to the stage to show off their variety of talents, including singing, acting and dancing.

"In all honesty, I think it's the best production I've ever seen at a primary school that I've been associated with, and is a timely reminder for me personally, of the importance of a broad and balanced curriculum," commented Andy.

"I would also like to add that something as brilliant as this production doesn't happen unless there are people prepared to give their energy, time and commitment to it, so it is with heartfelt thanks to my entire staff team for going above and beyond to make this show such a success, and to all the Mums, Dads, Grandmas and Granddads, who came along and supported the show — thank you."

"Of course, I can't forget our star pupils — each and every one of them deserve their Easter holiday! Well done to everyone involved."

Funds raised from the event included a silent auction of four Tim Rice signed posters from the original Lion King production, along with some beautiful photographic prints from local photographer Paul Wilkinson.

Photographs of the live production were also captured for Haddenham.net — some of these can be seen in the GALLERIES section. If any parents or guardians would like copies of these 'production shots' the school can provide them, or you can simply download the reduced resolution images from this website.
