Local Children Took a Magical Trip to Neverland Over the Summer Holidays

Perform Drama School ran some exciting Summer Holiday experiences for the local 4-8 year olds in East Dulwich last week. This five day course took them on a magical trip to Neverland with Peter Pan, Wendy, John and Michael as they help rescue Tinkerbell from the dastardly Captain Hook. Perform’s energetic young team of actors, musicians and dancers were with them every step of the way to inspire and encourage. Using funky dance and quick-witted improvisation, the children went on a dazzling adventure guaranteed to fire their imaginations. With colourful costumes, original songs and live music, the local children enjoyed a fun-packed week putting together a fantastic show that delighted family and friends.
