Absent-minded professor Caractacus Potts restores a broken down old racing car with the help of children Jemima and Jeremy.

The family discovers the car has magical powers and sets off on a fantastical trip with Truly Scrumptious, who falls in love with their widowed dad.

Dick Van Dyke starred in a film version of the book in 1968.

The show runs from Wednesday, July 10 to Saturday, July 13 at the school hall on Bexton Road.

Tickets priced £10 are available from the upper school student office.
