PUPILS of Court Fields School, Wellington, delivered two outstanding performances of their production of ‘The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe’ which left their audiences spellbound.

The performances took place on Wednesday and Thursday, March 20 and 21, and followed six months of dedicated rehearsals for 48 of the school’s talented students who took part.

The production of the classic C.S. Lewis children’s fantasy story marked a significant milestone for Court Fields, as it was the first show that the school had been able to produce in the past five years.
