Peter Pan charity radio show to air in hospitals
Radio drama development company Soundstage Communications has produced a special adaptation of Peter Pan to air at hospital radio stations across the UK.
Its repertory arm, Soundstage Rep, performed a live charity show of the radio adaptation at the Garage Theatre, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the first performance of JM Barrie’s classic story. There are also plans for it to be broadcast in Australia and New Zealand.
Company director Jason Rosam said: “The live stage show offered a unique theatrical experience. We effectively invited the audience to join us in the radio studio to watch our adaptation being performed and recorded.”
All profits from the project were donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity and there are plans for further radio drama projects next year. For further details about working with the company visit www.soundstagecommunications.com.
