YOUNG thespians at Embsay Primary School played to sell-out crowds.

About 120 key stage one children staged Jungle Book and all three performances in the village hall were sold out.

"Every child was in costume," said year six teacher Kirsty Crompton. "They did an absolutely fantastic job and the children loved doing the performances, the songs and the dances. We even had singing tigers."

The main characters were played by: Mowgli - Elliot Evans; Baloo - Archie Elsworth; Shere Khan - Ruby Eastwood; Bagheera - Tilly Dixon; King Louie - Louis Robson; and Shanti - Lily Scott
