Max Dorey worked with Chris to create the Crocodile, Becky Prior
and Mae Voogd fabricated puppets for the Flight to Neverland, Jen
Joule worked her lycra magic on Peter's shadow and Rob Stephenson
created an amazing orb for Tinkerbell. The GG team is immensely
proud of its contributions to the production.
Five star reviews are rolling in and tickets are flying out of the door.
