Youngsters bring a classic Dahl tale to life
10:00am Monday 13th August 2012 in News
A CLASSIC cautionary tale was brought to life by talented teens and children at the Pegasus Theatre.
Young people taking part in the venue’s summer workshop put together their own production of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Bloxham School pupil Thomas Jennings, 15, front right, is playing the role of Augustus Gloop.
He said: “I just thought it would be a funny role to play. I have to drown in a chocolate river and get sucked up a pipe, and my mother has to watch the whole thing, so it’s not the best way to go.”
Twelve-year-old Pampa Sillero, a pupil at Cheney School, landed the part of Mrs Beauregarde, the mother of the gum-chewing tearaway Violet.
Pampa said: “It’s really fun. Violet blows up like a blueberry after eating bad gum.”
