BUTLER students and staff are putting the final touches to this year’s musical production of Peter Pan.

Irene McCormack Catholic College is preparing to stage the play next week after months of rehearsals, singing lessons, set designs and costume fittings.

In a tale of adventure, discovery and dreams on their journey to Neverland, Wendy and her two brothers, Michael and John leave their home in London for an adventure filled with laughter, swordfights, crocodiles, mermaids, pirates and fairies.

Piers Chater-Robinson’s version of Peter Pan uses a mix of dance, song and theatre to tell the tale of the boy who wouldn’t grow up.

The cast, musicians, backstage crew, and production staff have worked tirelessly to bring the story to life.

“It has been a privilege to witness the talent, commitment and community involved in bringing the Production together,” head of performing arts head Kylie Malam said.

Performances will be at the Allan Shaw Centre at Peter Moyes Anglican Community School in Mindarie from April 11 to 13.
