Southwark College Drama students performed Peter Pan at Southwark College to a limited, socially distanced audience of staff and a professional recording of the piece was taken to be shared with the learners’ family and friends.

For many students this was the first time they had been part of a full production, giving them an introduction to the industry and the structures, terminology and processes used. This also helped students to develop their teamwork and enhance their vocal skills while engaging with an audience.

Annette Cast, Principal at Southwark College said: “We understand how important it is for our learners to perform to an audience and after the restrictions we have all faced due to Covid-19 guidelines, we are incredibly pleased to give our students this opportunity. Our students have risen to the challenge of creating a full-scale production and given a commendable performance, showcasing their abilities and giving them an insight into the industry.”

Level 2 students tackled a production of Peter Pan, the story of a magical boy who comes into the bedroom of Wendy and her two brothers chasing his shadow. He and his fairy friend Tinkerbell come from Neverland, where children stay young forever. The children follow him back but soon miss home when Peter Pan’s nemesis, Captain Hook, starts causing problems.

This performance was their final assessment in their module, Performing for an Audience, which pulls together the skills, knowledge and creativity developed throughout their qualification.
