Students at Edge Grove School put on their first major production in front of a live audience for the first time in two years, marking a special moment for the children, parents and staff.

Year 5 and 6 Pupils took part in a production of the classic tale, Peter Pan,  with a live orchestra and impressive staging and costumes. The production encompassed three different casts and a total of six showings across three days. 

Each cast involved every single pupil in Years 5 and 6 with roles spanning principle cast and main chorus. Audiences were treated to one of three different Peter Pans, Tinkerbells and infamous Captain Hook.

Head of Drama, Lucy Neale, said: “Peter Pan was an absolute triumph for the school, and we are super proud of our talented pupils. They each sang beautifully and enthusiastically throughout the production, with a range of songs designed to lift spirits and also some precious moments that tugged at the heartstrings, such as Do you Believe? whereby Peter Pan urges the audience to believe in fairy tales and Tinkerbell to bring her back to life. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house!”

Andrea Thornton, a parent of one of the Tinkerbell’s, said: “I cannot put into words how it felt to see all of those beautiful faces beaming with pride, happiness, joy and excitement.”
