It's a Pantastic team at Glebe House School
A production put together by many hands.
Pantastic is a musical based on Peter Pan that has been adapted for schools written by Tom Kirkham and Matthew Crossey and based on the play by J M Barrie.
The rib-tickling script remains true to the charming spirit of the book, but ensures that there are named parts and plenty of opportunities for a young and energetic cast.
Glebe House School’s years 6,7 and 8 are involved in the production with Scarlett Hallard as Peter Pan, Wendy by Molly Mulligan and Captain Hook by Giovanni Giubileo. Orla Haslam takes on the the Stage Manager’ job. There are four performances - Tuesday 17th and Thursday 19th May at 4pm and 6.30pm.
The Director Lucy Hawkins takes up the story: “Having only auditioned in January, we have been on a very tight to a schedule and I needed to branch out for some support with scenery/props etc.
“I approached the Hunstanton Men’s Shed who are situated at Glebe and asked if they would be able to help and they have been absolutely amazing! So friendly and always happy to help. The set and props that they have produced are fabulous and include the ship’s wheel and the window – an essential item as anyone who knows the story will appreciate.
“It is a production put together by many hands: Lydia Snaith and Alice Hipwell painted the set, Gina Veale the choreography, Matt Hallard set up all the lights and sound is teaching the children how to set and run it, and many parents and family have made and provided props and costumes as well as transporting students to and from rehearsals.
“It is a real team effort and the children are a delight to work with.”
The Glebe House School Head, Louis Taylor said: "We are delighted to put on this musical, the first of its kind since Covid disrupted the usual drama and music events that as a school we love to put on.
“We are indebted to all of the people who have made this happen and I am excited to watch the performances. I know that the children will have gained so much from the whole experience."
