The fight scene between Pan (Smith) and Hook (Ethan Dight was a highlight. The facials shown by Smith were very realistic. The show featured all the favourite characters from the story including Hook, Smee, Tinkerbelle, Tigerlily and the crocodile.
The Older Wendy (O'Brien) in the kiss scene had the audience laughing. When she was trying to explain to Peter what a kiss was.
Captain Hook (Ethan Dight) and Smee (Lachlan Blackwell) worked great together as a team. Loved Hooks (Dight) scared reaction to hearing the ticking crocodile (Nathan Smith). Smith did a great job and sang 'Never Smile at a Crocodile', he had a lovely voice.
Smee (Blackwell) stole the stage with his hilarious jokes, he has a real talent and should be on a stage. The lighting was great between scenes diming to black and lighting up individuals as they spoke, well done Mike Phillips and Lesley Brittan.
All the pirates and lost children sang in unison and the last song 'Happy Ending' was a highlight of the night. Both Georgia Gustard who played Patch and Abbey Phillips who played Kidd really stood out on the stage while dancing like they really wanted to be there. Some of the younger pirates and lost children did really well remembering their lines and singing solos throughout songs.
There was a lot of enthusiasm from Gaby Taylor (Child 1 & Neverlander) and Zach Taylor (blackbeard). The pirate Tatoo (Shannon O'Brien) was very funny to watch. Shayla Mitchell who played Nibs did a lovely solo about her mother. It was just beautiful. Her voice really touched the audience.
Taylah Cini did a great job playing Tinkerbelle, her costume was beautiful and looked very much like the Tinkerbelle we remember from childhood. Her character portrayal was amazing she spoke, looked, acted like Tinkerbelle, it was a great performance. Cini's stage make-up looked really good with the glitter and green face paint like a real fairy. Her song about losing her best friend that she sang about Peter was beautiful, she has a great voice for theatre.
A special mention to Zach Brittan for his role as Michael Darling and Saxon Mitchell for John Darling. Kimberly Hoffman (Tigerlily) looked great in her islander costume, she has a great voice and did very well in her solo.
This show was very entertaining and was easy to see a lot of work went into producing it. The cast worked very hard to create replicas of the characters we remember from stories. A special mention to the singing coach Danni Fulcher because the children sounded beautiful on stage.
