Thank you The Willows School

Last week Colin Richmond, the designer of the set and costumes for Wendy and Peter Pan, paid a visit to The Willows Primary School in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Students there have created paintings and drawings that will be used on stage in the Wendy and Peter Pan show and Colin wanted to thank them personally for their help.

The artwork will be used in the nursery scenes of the play which feature the famous Darling children. Children at the school have created around 30 pictures using materials which would have been available at the time of the play's setting, 1909, such as coloured pencils, crayons and paint.

Six pictures will appear in each performance – and all 30 drawings will be used in rotation.

Before arriving at the school, Colin explained: 'The nursery will include pictures that the Darling children have drawn or painted, so it made complete sense to ask local schoolchildren to get involved. I can't wait to see what they've come up with.'

You can see the children's hard work on display in performances of Wendy and Peter Pan from 10 December 2013 to 2 March 2014.
