Review: Viva's production of Peter Pan Junior in the Beeches, Isleham on Saturday 16th February 2019

Viva's production of Peter Pan Junior in the Beeches, Isleham on Saturday was positively charming. A host of young performers filled the stage and acted and sang with unforgettable, endearing innocence.

All the favourite characters from Peter Pan were there: Peter Pan (played by Oscar Vaughan) was every bit the quirky, flighty, conceited character desired. Wendy (Bethany Geach) was the serious not- ready- to- grow- up story teller who, after all their fantastic adventures with fantastic Fairies, Mermaids, Indians, Pirates and their so-called leader Captain Hook, finally realised it was time that she grew up - unlike Peter Pan.

As the father, Mr Darling, Oliver Howell was a wonderful bombastic head of the house. As Captain Hook he was particularly good at representing the feeble coward struck with fear from the clock ticking crocodile.

John (Joseph Carlin) was brave and strong while Michael (Fin Fordham) was the cutest youngest member of the family.

Tinkerbell (Sienna Warder) communicated delightfully with her bells and her facial expressions were particularly impressive.

Within the early moments of the play we were soon commiserating fully with the sad fate of Nana (Gabriel Robbins) who had been banished from the children's bedroom, no matter how much their mother (Kiera Allgood) tried to intervene.

The fairies and the mermaids added more delight with their beauty and charm and were contrasted well by the dastardly deeds of the pirates.

Other key characters that helped to bring the story alive were Smee (Thomas Leadbeter), Chief Tiger Bamboo (Ollie Partridge), and Tigerlily (Hannah Godfrey).

Director Jess Clifford and her team created a wonderful evening of youthful adventure that was a pleasure and honour to witness. More please.
