The world premiere (yes, world!) of Peter Pan - The Musical took place in Dublin last week. We’re up there with London and New York now with the very first showing of a musical by West End producers – take a bow Grand Canal Theatre.

It was very much a family affair for many of our home grown personalities. Miriam Ahern attended with her daughter Georgina and son in law Nicky Byrne and their twins Jay and Rocco; Kathleen Watkins was there with daughter Crona and grand-children.

As were Bernard Dunne, wife Pamela and children Caoimhe and Finnian; Pat and Kathy Kenny with their beautiful daughters Kristina and Nicole along with Kathy's mother Diane; Singer Mary Byrne and her nieces, Lisa Duffy and her children, Karen Koster and Diana Bunici were also in attendance.

The Musical featured spectacular flying sequences and stunning visual effects which have never been seen before, indeed the audience delighted in seeing Peter Pan fly through the auditorium!

Peter Pan - The Musical is running at Grand Canal Theatre until 6th August.
