Have your say

ARTISTIC schoolchildren have added an extra bit of magic to this year’s Cinderella panto at the Kings Theatre – with amazing models inspired by the fairytale.

Ugly sisters, coaches, pumpkins and dozens of mice made by Boundary Oak School pupils are taking pride of place in the dress circle promenade of the Southsea venue.

The five to 13-year-olds designed the papier mache, paints, mod rock and weave sculptures, which will remain in place for every single performance of Cinderella.

Michelle Deacon, art teacher at the Fareham school, said: ‘There’s nothing better than seeing your own work on display.

‘The children are very proud of what they’ve achieved and have all got tickets to the panto, when they will sail past their fantastic art works!’
