Sharjah International Book Fair children’s theatre echoed with cheer and applause from its young audience, as curtains unveil at house 14 on Bloomsbury Street, London, where the Darling family from Peter Pan sang, “When the sun goes down, that’s when I’m love with London town…”
Wendy, Michael, John, their darling parents and doggy Nana danced around the house before Peter Pan made an entry and took the kids away. With a little bit of fairy dust from Peter Pan’s fairy friend Tinkerbell, they could fly over the roofs of London Town to reach Neverland, where they were joined by mermaids, the lost boys, Captain Cook and his pirates, and Princess Tiger Lily.
Children cheered on and applauded loudly when Peter Pan gave them the responsibility of bringing fairy Tinkerbell back to life. Completely smitten by the twists and turns of the plot where Captain cook and his evil plans were defeated and the Darling kids were brought home, the young audience were left craving for more.
In a brilliant production of song and dance, the characters taught children how to be young at heart and believe in fairies and the inherent goodness of this world, always. Children were reminded through the show to never stop dreaming and never question their creative imaginations.
