Dusty Dragon, Bernie Blackhead and Jolly Jake the Jester were among the comic characters featured in a Camelot-inspired play performed by pupils at Cromer Junior School.
Entitled What a Knight!, the madcap musical told the tale of hapless Watt Cobblers, who, after being expelled from knight school, is taken on as an apprentice by Merlin the magician.
But, when Merlin loses Excalibur, King Arthur's daughters are kidnapped and his brave knights are turned into chickens, Watt and his new-found friends set off on the biggest adventure of their lives.
Starring a dual cast of nearly 70 nine and 10-year-olds, the show, which was performed to parents and pupils, was directed by Year 5 teachers Victoria Stares and Olivia Charman, with teaching assistants Karen Wright and Sharon Pearce making props and costumes.
Mrs Stares said: "The show has been a real confidence-builder, it's generated a huge amount of enthusiasm and everyone has been really keen to get their part right."
