It’s a Fine Life for Musical Pupils
TALENTED youngsters left their audiences asking for more with their own version of the smash hit musical Oliver.
Pupils from Pallister Park Primary School in Middlesbrough sang and danced their hearts out in two well-received performances for families and friends.
Star of the show was Brian Freeman, 10, who dazzled the audiences with his solo performances as Oliver Twist.
Headteacher Chris Wain said: "It was brilliant - a really superb performance. I tried to get Brian an audition with the BBC's I'd Do Anything programme, but unfortunately I missed the deadline. He would have had a real chance of winning that show."
The show was extra special for teaching assistant Lynn Evenden, who is leaving Pallister Park after 19 years.
She will be remembered for her piano playing skills and her work with the school choir.
