Youngster students from Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College put on three shows of Alice.

The main character was masterfully played by Grace, from year nine.

Hugo drew plenty of laughs as the Mad Hatter while Jamie played the terrifying Queen of Hearts.

Alan was a trolley-riding caterpillar and Jack brought bags of comedy to the role of the Cheshire Cat.

A school spokesman said: “It was wonderful to see so many of the children that I teach in a completely different light.

“They had audiences rolling in the aisles with their comic timing, their confidence and their portrayal of some wild and wacky characters.”

A number of students made up the cast while other pupils helped behind the scenes.
