Delighted pupils were transported from wet and windswept Dorset to the wondrous world of Agrabah this month, when M&M Theatrical Productions visited Wyvern Academy with their production of Aladdin.
Aladdin comes to Wyvern Academy
Kelly Stinton, head of primary at the Academy said: "The children were thrilled by the story of Aladdin and his best friend, the mischievous yet loveable monkey Abu. A wonderful lamp that grants wishes and journeys on a flying carpet certainly injected some magic into our school day!"
M&M Theatrical Productions is the UK's largest touring theatre company and expert in providing theatre-in-education and children's pantomime. All scripts are written in-house, so the audience receives a play appropriate for their needs.
Kelly said: "The children responded very enthusiastically to the story, and really got into the spirit of the event."
Wyvern Academy is a specialist school for cognition and learning, providing highly individualised education for up to 86 pupils aged 2 - 19 years with complex learning difficulties, including autistic spectrum disorders.
