Tauranga Boys ‘College and Tauranga Girls’ College present Peter Pan – A Musical Adventure from Monday, June 26-Saturday, July 1 at Tauranga Boys’ College’s Graham Young Youth Theatre.
In the Darling house, in a backwater in Bloomsbury, Mr and Mrs Darling wish they didn’t have to go out for the evening, but needs must. Leaving their children, Wendy, Michael and John, under the watchful eyes of Lisa, the maid and Nana, their Newfoundland dog, they reluctantly bid their brood goodnight.
As silence descends on the nursery, a small ball of light, no larger than a gentlewoman’s fist, enters the room – it is Tinkerbell. The mischievous fairy flits frantically about as if searching for something.
Moments later, the windows swing open and Peter Pan files into the nursery. Wendy is awoken and helps Peter to reattach his shadow and, with the promise of regaling Peter and the Lost Boys with bedtime stories, she is invited to accompany him on his flight home.
Wendy can’t leave her brothers behind, so she wakes John and Michael and with a sprinkling of fairy dust and the children join Peter Pan and Tinkerbell as they fly out of their nursery window and across a moonlit London.
But Neverland is not as carefree as Peter had suggested. There are bloodthirsty pirates, warrior Indians and malevolent mermaids – and above all, there is Captain James Hook, Peter Pan’s Eton-educated nemesis who is forever followed by a deadly, ticking crocodile. Bloomsbury seems another world away...
“Come and see the fantastic new take on Peter Pan with amazing songs and a great cast and crew. You will only be disappointed if you don’t get your tickets soon as they are selling fast,” says director of arts John Page.
The Weekend Sun has a double pass to any screening during the festival for one lucky reader who can tell us the names of the Darling children.
