Roald Dahl stories come to life at Old Windsor school

The wonderful world of children's author Roald Dahl came to life this week at St Peter's Church of England Middle School.

More than 40 pupils from the school in Crimp Hill Road, Old Windsor performed against a stunning backdrop they created themselves.

The show was written by English teacher Lorna D'Arcy and staged on Wednesday and Thursday.

James and the Giant Peach featured Ben Qureshi in the lead role as a myriad of giant-sized insects in costumes - again created by artistic students – help him defeat his overbearing aunts played by Josh McEwan and Caleb Sampson.

The finale saw the Big Friendly Giant brought to life by Moritz Hoogers, while Scarlett O’Shaughnessy played his friend Sophie.

School governor Emma Wood said: "The whole performance was stunning – I overheard one of the parents saying it was the best show she'd ever seen at the school."
