Neverland brought to life at theatre event

CHILDREN and families were whisked away to Neverland at a special event in the Theatre Royal last Saturday.

Organised by youth forum The JMB Creatives, as part of YouthBeatz Fringe, the magical event celebrated the town’s connections to the story of Peter Pan.

Guests were treated to mocktails and croctails, including Hook’s Fury, Pan’s Punch, Tinker Bell’s Tonic and Wendy’s Wonderbrew.

They set sail through storms and calm seas on the Jolly Roger – a 3D digitally projected pirate ship created by Purple Box Productions and played with reversed shadows and mermaid bubbles.

Live music was provided by Alana Currie, Elia Davidson and Emily McLatchie of The Music Room and Maeve Reekie gave a Discover Your Inner Mermaid make-up demonstration.

The Peter Pan-themed photobooth proved a great success as young guests enjoyed dressing up and creating new characters with hats, hooks, swords and fairy wings from the theatre’s extensive props department.

Participant Caitlin McGauchy, 11, said: “It’s been a really good night and I wish we could do it more often. It was really good.”

It was also a chance for JMB Creatives to recruit more young members, aged 10-21, to help develop activities and plans for Moat Brae, which will open as a National Centre for Children’s Literature and Storytelling at the end of 2018.
