What the Press Said:

“Re-coining an old adage ‘Good theatre from little shows grow’ applies to Fred Abrahamse and Marcel Meyer’s musical, Peter Pan. Meyer has adapted Barrie’s tale into a precise, easy song-and-dance plot to follow…cheerful music, attractive sequined costumes, and you have a charming family show” WEEKEND SPECIAL

“The beautifully designed grandiose sets and costumes, paired with the direction of Abrahamse and Meyer makes for a show that is a treat not only for the younger generation, but also for those whom are young at heart” STAGE AND SCREEN

“Three shows daily in Canal Walks 550-seater raked arena speak volumes about the interest parents have in introducing their young to theatre. That was Fred Abrahamse and Marcel Meyer’s aim when 13 years ago, in a tiny shop, they began presenting children’s classics. Watching children sitting enthralled as Peter Pan unfolded, the duo can be satisfied that this present production justified their initial venture” THE CAPE TIMES
