Ellon Academy Drama Club are busy rehearsing for their upcoming show.

The group will perform ‘Peter Pan - A Musical Adventure’ next month.

Rehearsals have been progressing well and the cast are getting very excited about presenting this musical.

The storyline, based on the story by J.M. Barrie, is a wonderful adventure and has a beautiful, haunting musical score which in turn is up-beat, thoughtful and dramatic. 

Principal Teacher of Creative Arts at Ellon Academy, David Birse, said: “There is a lot of hard work involved in preparing this full version of the show, but we are having a great time.

“Following on from the success of our previous musicals, ‘The Sound of Music’ , ‘Annie’, ‘The Music Man’, ‘Annie Get Your Gun’ and ‘The Railway Children’, we aim to create another outstanding production.

“This is a wonderful show and is suitable for all age groups. It is a real “fun” show – dramatic, magical, thought-ful and spell-binding.”

So what adventures are in store for Peter, Wendy and her brothers? Who are the Lost Boys? Will Peter and Wendy escape the tyrannical Captain Hook’s clutches? Head along to the show to find out.

The performances will be on the evenings of Tuesday 11, Wednesday 12, Thursday 13 and Friday 14 June at 7.30pm in the Theatre at Ellon Academy Community Campus.

Tickets are priced at £9 for adults and £6 for concessions/children, available from the main reception at Ellon Academy and J&K Shoes in Ellon.
