Youngsters help RSC with their Christmas production

ARTISTIC youngsters at a Warwick school are helping out the Royal Shakespeare Company with their Christmas production.

Year 5 pupils at Newburgh Primary School have created paintings which are being used on stage in Stratford at the RSC’s production of Wendy & Peter Pan.

The artwork is used in the nursery scenes of the play which feature the famous Darling children. The school was asked to create around 20 paintings appropriate to the play’s setting of 1909.

Colin Richmond, who has designed the set and costumes for the show, said: “The nursery includes pictures that the Darling children have painted, and I’m delighted a local school has been involved in the production.”

Wendy & Peter Pan runs in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre until January 31.
