Archant

Peter Pan the Panto, in Axminster, closed on Saturday night, to draw to a close month of hard work by club members.

Axminster Drama Club’s latest pantomime proved to be a great success with only a few seats left unsold.

A cast of around 40 people, more than half of which were children, performed Peter Pan from Thursday to Saturday last week.

Many positive comments were made about the show, with its colourful costumes, special effects, including Peter Pan flying across the stage, and its beautifully decorated set.

At the after-show party, all those involved were thanked for their efforts, all of which helped to create such a well-received show.
