Cromwell Community College students donned masks for their production of Dahl’s poems, ‘Revolting Rhymes’ at Chatteris Library on Tuesday (15).

Year 10 and 12 students spent the day with the theatre company learning how to perform with masks, before taking to the stage.

Head of performance, Angela King, said: “I want to give a big thank you to 20Twenty Productions who secured funding from ‘Arts Alive in Libraries’ to make this event possible.

“We have some very talented students at Cromwell and experiences like this really enrich their learning experience.”
