The little actors brought art and grace to the stage to delight the audience which included members of their families.
Music, traditional fairy tales including Little Red Riding Hood (with a modern twist), military histories and adventures of castaways were some of the entertainment offerings.
The councillor for Culture in Huercal Overa, Antonio Lazaro, and the Councillor for Economy, Maribel Sanchez, presented the little actors with their diplomas and a small gift.
Lazaro explained: “This event that we first launched four years ago has become a benchmark in the cultural and programming centres. We present our schools who, through interpretation have given us a form of artistic expression such as theater.”
Lazaro went on to congratulate the players for their “great performance and teachers for the great work they do with students preparing these events” and stressed a continued support.
