"This show will have you hooked from beginning to end with a very talented cast"
It’s always a pleasure to be invited to review amateur productions, as everyone involved really does give their all. There is no exception with the Bilston Operatic Company’s production of Peter Pan A Musical Adventure which is playing at the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre until the 12th November 2022.
Based on the J. M. Barrie classic play, Peter Pan is a story known far and wide by many. This production features music and lyrics by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe respectively who are synonymous with many a family friendly musical. Their songs really are beautiful throughout this production and the cast delivered them all very well.
We open on a group number ‘There’s Something in the Air Tonight’, a rather sombre song, depicting a dark, drizzly evening in London. As soon as the show starts, I am very impressed with the quality of the staging and set. There is nothing amateur here and it really elevates the experience with impressive light displays and props by Philip Evans.
