The play was written by staff members Toby Rome and Fiona Lockhart and directed by assistant head, Chris James.

The production featured some fairytale favourites as they have never been seen before. Peter Pan found himself stranded on the yellow brick road, but after meeting Dorothy and her companions they set out on an exciting adventure.

Students, parents and friends of the school were invited in to see the 40-strong cast fight battles and sing songs in the colourful play.

Staff put on productions for the school every year had have performed A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Cinderella and Little Shop of Horrors.
