YJA enters Neverland

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page


With the panto season breaking out across the UK, YJA members Alfie, Luke and Lola from Burgh School were thrilled to be invited to the rehearsals of Peter Pan. This famous story is sure to bring the crowds flocking to Skegness’s Embassy Theatre, where the show opens on Friday 16th December.

Jamie Marcus Productions and the Embassy Theatre Skegness are presenting the swashbuckling adventure that involves a free-spirited and mischievous young boy, who can fly and absolutely refuses to grow up.

Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood experiencing fairy dust adventures with interesting characters that include the likes of fairies, pirates, mermaids and, occasionally, ordinary children from the world outside Neverland.

By coincidence, it was at the Neverland Theatre in Skegness, where the YJA team met up with the cast:


Adam Fox / ‘Smee’



Gary Starr/ ‘Captain Hook’



Mark Hyde / ‘Nurse Nelly’



Samuel Bailey / ‘Peter Pan’



Sydney Hocknell / ‘Wendy’



Isabelle Peet / ‘Tiger Lilly’



This professional production promises to be full of fun, laughter, well-known songs and magical enchantment – including an incredible flying sequence from London to Neverland.

    Thank you and the students once again for today.

    The cast really enjoyed interacting with the students and all commented on their professionalism and enthusiasm.

    We hope the children enjoyed their time with us today and we look forward to seeing them at the pantomime and working with them again in the future.

    Warmest Regards
