This year’s Big Top Company performance in St Neots was a huge success, according to director and dance teacher Tom Langdale.
More than 30 young people from dance schools in the area performed in the Peter Pan in Narnia Land show, which was a follow-up to last year’s performance of Aladdin and the hugely successful The Grinch Who Stole Panto in 2015.
Peter Pan in Narnia Land and provided a twist on the popular tale of the boy who never grew up, with dashing heroes, singing mermaids, daft Indians, swashbuckling pirates and the villainous Captain Hook.
“We enjoyed a successful run of shows which went down a treat with the audiences,” said Mr Langdale.
“After seven successful shows, which were full of learning curves and fantastic memories, we will be trying something new year with a family musical in the summer.
“Lisa Parmenter, who played Hook, wowed the crowds with her knock-out belting voice.”
