Curtain up on revolting rhymes!

Classic fairy tales with a hilarious twist are leaping off the page and on to the stage with the latest performance from students at Havering College of Further and Higher Education.

Acting and Musical Theatre students in the first and second year of the BTEC Extended Diploma in Performing Arts course will be re-telling Roald Dahl’s outrageous stories in two public performances of Revolting Rhymes next week.

The shows are being held in The Space at the Havering College Ardleigh Green Campus on Wednesday, December 12th and Thursday, December 13th at 7pm.

Children from eight local schools have this week been enjoying preview performances with characters such as a gun-toting Little Red Riding Hood, a home wrecking Goldilocks who goes on trial for her crimes and an axe-wielding Prince Charming.

Havering College Performing Arts lecturer Julia Stallard said: “We have adapted Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes into a play. The students have really embraced their parts and local schoolchildren are enjoying the show.”

Tickets for the two public performances of Revolting Rhymes on December 12th and 13th are priced at £5. For details email
