Some things you might not expect to encounter in Peter Pan are Red Indians with Welsh accents but this is exactly what you find in Axminster Drama Club’s version of this classic tale as after all this is Peter Pan, the Pantomime.

Stuck with all the washing to do, following a food fight between the lost children, her brothers, and of course Peter Pan, Wendy (played by Mattie Taylor) soon receives help from an unusual source, thanks to two comic Indians in the form of regular Axminster performers Eileen Stuart and Caroline Markham, before being kidnapped by pirates and taken to Captain Hook’s ship.

Members of Axminster Drama Club are currently busy putting the final touches to all that is needed to make Peter Pan and Tinkerbelle fly, a magical lost children’s den and a fearsome Captain Hook’s ship.

Not to mention all the many and varied costumes which will enhance the fantastic sets, plus a scary crocodile and a manic parrot.

Tickets are now on sale at Archway Bookshop, Church Street, Axminster and a reduction is offered for all tickets bought in advance.

The show will run from Thursday, January 16, to Saturday, January 18,with a matinee on the Saturday.

A donation is being made to Great Ormond Street Hospital for sick children for the use of the Peter Pan name and the script has been written by the Leat Family, who are also heavily involved in directing and producing the show.
