SCHOOLCHILDREN let their talent shine in front of a packed village hall.

Cambo First School’s summer performance was called The Moon Thieves, which allowed pupils to play some colourful characters.

The plot involves a poor granny, a boy, a rat and a cat who have a longing for different things that can never come true.

They all looked up at the moon and instead wished for something smaller — a silver coin, a silk pillow, a dish of cream and a big round block of cheese. But for these things to come true they had to catch the moon.

With help from trees, market people, fish, fireflies and hens among others, in the end they had enough to eat and a safe place to rest their heads.

Cambo Headteacher Paula Cummings said: “Fabulous acting, singing and wonderful costumes resulted in lots of laughs, lots of cheering and jeering in the right places.

“As the curtain fell the cries of encore echoed across the room, to which the children responded with great gusto by performing once again.

“Our children really enjoy being involved in performing for the community. Several of them attend drama lessons and we feel that we have potential stars in the making.”
