Coventry schoolchildren transform Albany Theatre into Neverland with musical performance

Ryan Smith 31st Jul, 2022

PUPILS from St Gregory’s Catholic Primary School took their parents to Neverland at Albany Theatre in a musical retelling of the classic Peter Pan.

The schools year five and six students performed Pantastic, the award-winning adaptation of Peter Pan.

The youngsters showcased a musical deep dive into what it means to grow up and how wonderful staying young forever sounds.

They then went through the iconic plot and the show included songs such as ‘Nobody Wants to Grow Old’, ‘Here in Neverland’, ‘Tick Tock Crocodile’, and ‘Peter Pan is missing’.

Parent Nicola McGuigan said the performance was very enjoyable from start to finish and she was very proud to see her son on stage.

St Gregory’s Associate Principal Megan Scullion added: “Pantastic was a brilliant way to mark the end of the school year, with parents, families, friends and colleagues not just joining in to watch the performance, but supporting with rehearsals and helping us to put on a great show.

“To be able to perform at the Albany Theatre was a real privilege and added an extra layer of magic to the show.”
