This week saw our hugely talented Year 6 pupils put on their absolutely wonderful production of “Peter Pan JR”.
After working tirelessly over the past few months perfecting their performances and learning their lines, our eager young performers took to the stage for the first time on Monday evening. Over two nights, the children delighted their watching parents as they impressed with their enthusiasm, talent and confidence! It was particularly special for the children that we were able to stage the play in a COVID-safe way and allow them to have the experience of performing to a live audience, albeit a small socially distanced one! A film was also made so that they could share their performance with a wider circle of family and friends, who in normal times would have been able to watch in person.
Based on J.M. Barrie’s classic tale and featuring an unforgettable score by Morris “Moose” Charlap and Jule Styne with lyrics by Carolyn Leigh and Betty Comden and Adolph Green, “Peter Pan” is one of the most beloved and frequently performed family favourites of all time. This high-flying Tony Award-winning musical has been performed around the world and delighted audiences for 60 years and is now adapted for young performers.
Featuring the iconic songs, “I’m Flying”, “I’ve Gotta Crow”, “I Won’t Grow Up” and “Never Never Land”, and a rousing book full of magic, warmth and adventure, “Peter Pan JR.” is the perfect show for the child in all of us… who dreamed of soaring high and never growing up.
Both shows went extremely well and we are so proud of each and every member of the cast! A huge well done to all of Year 6 and, of course, our fabulous Director Mrs Dobson, and the rest of the Prep staff for helping it all run so smoothly!
