Two young Peter Pan panto fans are all smiles after winning a pair of puppet stars from Sheringham’s fun festive show.
Brother and sister Harrison and Eva Peck, from Sheringham, enjoyed visiting the show at the Little Theatre – really getting into the spirit by dressing up as characters Captain Hook and Wendy.
Now the icing on their cake has been to win crocodile puppets Tick and Tock - who terrorised Captain Hook in the successful show - in an end-of-season raffle, which also raised funds for the community theatre. Parents Kate Stevens and Craig Peck took Harrison, five, and Eva, four, along to the venue to collect their new colourful chums.
Ms Stevens said: “Harrison was so excited when he heard that we had won the raffle and has already arranged to take the puppets into Sheringham Primary School to show all his friends!”
Theatre director Debbie Thompson said: “I couldn’t be more delighted that Tick and Tock have found such a perfect home with a young family of Peter Pan fans.”
The £500 raised from the raffle will go toward the theatre’s Little Bit Bigger campaign to build an extension on a flat roof to make a flexible space for young people using the venue.
