COLDSTREAM youngsters were treated to a more exotic tytpe of entertainment than they are used to, with a performance by the Moradokmai Theatre Troupe from rural Thailand.

Currently on tour, troupe members visited Coldstream Primary on Tuesday. Pupils got the chance to enjoy traditional Thai music, dance and theatre.

“This is a company like no other I have worked with’ said tour organiser Hazel Roy.

“The whole company of 60-plus live, work and make theatre together in a Buddhist eco -community, where the students learn to grow and cook their own food, take a full part in their community and enjoy a rigorous training in traditional Thai dance music and theatre.”
