Nearly 200 youngsters are off to Neverland with a Sheffield performing arts school.

Beighton-based Noodle Performance Arts is staging Peter Pan at Sheffield Springs Academy in Arbourthorne – involving 175 children aged three to 11 from Sheffield and Rotherham.

The youngsters attend Noodle performing arts and dance classes across Sheffield, including in Beighton, Ecclesall, Hillsborough and Totley, as well as venues in Rotherham.

Nikki Johnson, Noodle managing director, said: “Our performers have really enjoyed learning the scenes, dances and songs for Peter Pan. It’s such a magical story, which appeals to people of all ages.

“The children have been rehearsing for the show for about six months and, for the first time, we’ll be putting on three performances to give more parents, relatives and friends the chance to watch it.”

It will be Noodle’s sixth show since it began in September 2011.
