"Wendy - the Peter Pan Musical" is a 4 month training programme, building up to another spectacular season performing at Auckland's Aotea Centre.
National Youth Theatre is an all-access training programme for children and young adults aged between 7 - 21. You don't need to audition to be part of the chorus, our lead roles are auditioned from within the cast. Rehearsals are broken up by age group and all of the skills you need to participate in the show are taught by our experienced tutors. Rehearsals are at Bayfield School, Herne Bay and are mostly on Sunday afternoons, with lead rehearsals on Thursday evenings.
There are four subsidised performances for schools, on 1st and 2nd December, at 9:45am and 12:15pm both days. If your school is interested in attending please get in touch.
Our younger cast, Teams Red and Yellow (11 and under) are split into two groups for the performances, each group performing 2 school and 2 public shows. This helps to keep our younger cast members fresh and enthused throughout the production week.

About the Show
Honouring the original text of J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan, but reimagined for a 21st century audience, Wendy takes centre stage as she charts a path in Neverland from youthful innocence to changing the world alongside the much-loved characters of Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Captain Hook and the Lost Boys.
Featuring 20 original songs, the revival of forgotten Barrie characters including the Never Bird and the Mermaid, and a colourful and exhilarating production featuring flying, colourful costumes, mechanical creatures, and stunning lighting and digital effects.
Writers-composers Jonathan Alver and James Doy have crafted an incredible song list reflecting the eccentric nature of J M Barrie's writing whilst bringing it alive for a new generation.
Some of the best moments of our 2017 production!
