YOUNGSTERS were cast into a shadow puppet workshop in a week of activities put on by Pegasus Theatre.

The session from Oxford children’s theatre club Wild Boor Ideas was put on on Wednesday.

It was part of an Easter holidays activity programme at the Magdalen Road theatre this week.

The children, aged between six and 12, tried a number of different activities including drama, dance, music, and art in the bite-size taster sessions.

Lara Heneghan, 12, said: “I’ve enjoyed this week because I like doing the different activities and trying out new stuff. My favourite activity is drama, because it’s fun to do acting.”

Toby Stephenson, eight, added: “I think coming to Pegasus is a great experience because you get to feel that you’re really good and have a talent, like acting on stage.”
