Youth theatre’s original Peter Pan tale will have you hooked

The production follows on from a successful summer for Trinity Youth Theatre which saw the group staging an ambitious production of the school edition of Stephen Sondheim’s hit musical Sweeney Todd. Members also took two shows up to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe – Ben Hur, Patrick Barlow’s hilarious small scale send-up of the Biblical epic; and Pronoun, a teenage love story about transition, testosterone and James Dean. Pronoun was highlighted by the publication Fringe Review as one of the standout youth theatre shows of this year’s Fringe.

The same creative ambition drives its latest project, Peter Pan, with many elements of the production having been created from scratch by Director Samuel Marlow and the Trinity team.

“Peter is not portrayed sympathetically in this version,” explains Samuel. “He is a sinister, otherworldly character, who abducts the three Darling children to a strange dreamworld. It is clear that JM Barrie thought of Peter as the story’s villain and Wendy its hero.                                                                                          

“I was keen to reintroduce audiences to the original versions of these characters, before they became the famous figures they are today.”

The production is supported by Baldwins Travel and is the local company’s second collaboration with Trinity Youth Theatre.

Joint Managing Director Nick Marks said: “Baldwins Travel understands the importance of building and cherishing relationships. We are delighted to sponsor Trinity’s Youth Theatre and its wonderful production of Peter Pan.

“The adventure of travel is at the heart of everything we do, and no one knows that more than the characters and actors in this play!”
