STUDENTS swapped school uniforms for long black gloves and colourful wigs - and showed their talent on stage.
Freman College in Buntingford played host to a convention of wig-wearing witches as students from Years 9 and 10 performed Roald Dahl's tale The Witches.
The Witches tells the story of a boy - played with remarkable confidence by Emily Dunn - who after being taught the finer points of spotting a witch, comes face-to-face with the most fearsome of all, the Grand High Witch.
The innovative production, which was held over two nights, proved a resounding success as students got to grips with one of Dahl's most popular stories.
