Peter Pan brought to life in Goulburn Valley Grammar production

By John Lewis

Goulburn Valley Grammar School's production of the timeless musical Peter Pan played to near full houses at Riverlinks WestSide in Mooroopna last week.

Show director Helen Janke said about 50 cast members from the school's Years 6 to 8 took part in the popular musical which ran for three nights from Thursday, August 22 to Saturday, August 24.

Ms Janke said the show's colourful costumes came from the school's wardrobe department.

"We have an amazing group of mums who have made and collected costumes for several years — so we can use them again and again," she said.

She said the cast was divided into lost boys, brave girls and pirates — with a crew of students also helping out backstage.

Ms Janke said the show was enjoyed by hundreds of people across the three nights.

"Many people said they forgot the performers were children. It was magical, and some people came back a second time," Ms Janke said.
