TALENTED thespians from Malmesbury School have been praised for their performances in the sold-out school production of Grimm's Tales.

The show took place over three nights from January 31 to February 2 and proved to be a massive hit with the sold-out audience every night.

Headteacher Tim Gilson, said: "The production was highly original and creative, and featured some stunning performances from the cast.

"Nearly 100 students took part, with about three quarters of them from years seven and eight. It was great to see so much depth of talent across all the year groups in the school. The original score really added to the drama of the piece.

"It is always lovely to sell out a show for three nights. I would like to thank our very creative and committed drama and music staff who make it all happen."

Grimm's Tales were originally novels written by German brothers, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in the 1800s. They are well-known for being much darker than the Disney fairytales everyone is familiar with.

The stage adaptation is based on these original fairytales.
