High-flying youngsters from Canvey’s Georgette Stage School get off the ground for their production of Peter Pan at the island’s Paddocks. Peter and friends have hit the heights in rehearsal with this special flying equipment.
Mrs Jackie Bowers, who made the costumes, said:” It’s a very small stage at The Paddocks with a low ceiling. The flying equipment had to be made specially. It came from the people who do the flying in the big theatres”.
Pictures left to right are Sara Bowers, 11, who plays Wendy; Samantha Osbourne, 10, who plays John; Sara’s sister Nicola, 14, who plays Peter Pan, and Lisa Foote, nine, who plays Michael. The show opens 7.30 Wednesday.
