Children took to the stage to star in Shakespeare's tale of doomed young love Romeo and Juliet.
Pupils from Aldborough Primary near Cromer trod the boards at Norwich Playhouse as part of the nationwide Shakespeare Schools Festival.
Before performing at the theatre the cast, which had an average age of 10, performed to the rest of the school at assembly.
Headteacher Tina Casburn described the production as 'breathtakingly and extraordinary.'
She added: 'All of the children are on stage all of the time creating scenarios which take the audience to the various locations within the play. They have been rehearsing twice each week during the last half term immersing themselves in Shakespeare's characters language.'
