PLUCKY pupils were on target with their end of year school show – 'Robin Hood and the Sherwood Hoodies'.

Packed with one liners, catchy tunes, madcap antics and a host of loveable and laughable characters, the audience were left in fits of laughter as talented kids from Inverkip Primary School showcased their hilarious show.

Paul Giffney, the P7 seven teacher and show director, said the children were stars and a credit to the school.

He said: "The kids had to audition before the Easter holidays then they got their lines to learn over the holiday.

"Some pupils had over 100 lines to learn so they did a great job.

"They then spent three weeks rehearsing on the stage."

The pupils performed to packed audiences with shows in both the afternoon and evening across two days while another performance was staged for the whole school to enjoy.

Mr Giffney said: "The show was one hour and 45 minutes long with no break.

"I thought the children were brilliant - it was a funny show."

Proud parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and carers packed out the school hall over two days and nights.

Mr Giffney added: "The audience were brilliant, they reacted really well as they laughed along with the joke."

The cast was led by the primary seven pupils, including Cameron McHugh, who played Robin Hood, Jude Collins, who took on the role of the sheriff, Jamie Glancy, who starred as King John, Mia Williamson as Maid Marion and Lucy McHaffie starring as Nursie.

Children from P3 up to P6 were also involved in the show.

Mr Giffney is keen to thank everyone involved for their support, especially Sharon Meechan, who filmed the show, John McGregor, the P6/5 teacher who created the background and stage, and Carol McCallum, a classroom assistant who made the costumes.
