TALENTED young performers from Malvern have beaten off strong competition from hundreds of other youngsters to secure coveted lead juvenile roles in a most eagerly awaited musical visiting the town.
They will appear when ABD’s professional production of Peter Pan flies in to the Festival Theatre from Wednesday, August 22 to Sunday, August 26.
The lead roles of John and Michael Darling will be played by real life brothers Lochie and Raphael Reid.
Both boys attend The Downs Malvern where Lochie has obtained a drama scholarship.
They will be joined by ten-year old Chanel Fulton as Tinker Bell.
Already an accomplished young singer and dancer, Chanel attends Northleigh School and is a pupil at Ballet Malvern.
The professional ABD Productions cast are working with two teams of youngsters in the run up to the performances.
Based on the much loved classic by J. M. Barrie, the musical is fast paced and colourful with energetic fights and flying.
Apart from Peter Pan, The Darlings, Captain Hook, his sidekick Smee, the pirate crew of the Jolly Roger, Indians and Lost Boys there are some exciting episodes from Barrie’s original story introducing new friends.
The Neverbird, a nosey, know-it all feathered friend gossips happily with the audience, leading them through the story.
Dancing Planets and Spheres light the way across the sky, Water Sprites and Dragonflies inhabit the Mermaid Lagoon while the Friendly Flames help to rescue Peter.
