Child Play, the complete children's drama program - "children can do everything "

Peter Pan

Peter Pan


From 8-17 July 2010, in the school holidays, Child Players ACT’s Child Play Program is presenting a new play adaptation by BJ Anyos of the classic tale of Peter Pan by JM Barrie at the Belconnen Theatre, Swanson St, Belconnen.

The story of the boy who refuses to grow up has had many interpretations on stage and screen. This adaptation by BJ is true to the original book and continues Child Players ACT’s vision of bringing the page to the stage. It will be a fun journey with Wendy, Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Tinker Bell and all their friends and enemies with lots of colour, magic and sword fighting. Suitable for everyone but may be a bit scary for the very young.

Peter Pan is the sixth July school holiday production from the Child Play Program kids, following the very popular Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in 2009. Child Play is a unique theatre training program created by B.J. Anyos, the Artistic Director of Child Players ACT. The Child Play program has been running for five years and gives approximately 36-40 children aged between 10-16 the opportunity to learn all aspects of theatre, both on-stage and back-stage. The Child Play participants are formed into two casts (this year the Blue and Green teams) and while one cast is performing on-stage the other cast are undertaking all the back-stage roles that contribute to a quality theatre production including stage management, lighting and sound, props etc. Cast members also provide live sound effects.

There will be a total of 14 performances of Peter Pan at the Belconnen Theatre between 8-17 July at 10.30am and 2.00pm on Thursday 8, Friday 9, Saturday 10, Wednesday 14, Thursday 15, Friday 16 and Saturday 17 July. All tickets are still only $15. Bookings and enquiries to 0413 139 790. No EFTPOS facilities available at the theatre.
