MORE than 80 actors and dancers aged three to 18 performed Tales from the Arabian Nights at Stonyhurst College.

Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, The Ruined Man Who Became Rich Again and The Hound, The Witch and The Horseman were specially devised by the students and staff in a range of styles including Japanese theatre, Mish-Mash and Roald Dahl-inspired verse speaking.

The talented cast transfixed the audience with their story-telling skill and engaging performances.

Dancers then gave a dazzling ballet, tap, modern and street dance performance of Aladdin to music by Carl Davis, Nilsson and the Pussycat Dolls.
