Memories are Made of This - Peter Pan


Peter Pan rehearsals with Oldham Theatre Workshop - original painting and poster by Paul Taggart - Artist, Author, Presenter, Producer

For everyone who has been carried along by the sheer brilliance of Sally Wainwright's 'Happy Valley' finale and the stunning performance put in by the one-and-only Sarah Lancashire - we simply had to share another once-in-a-lifetime performance by Sarah Lancashire as featured in Paul's painting of 'Peter Pan' in which Sarah Lancashire took the part of Mrs Darling - spot her here in this photographic montage from our wonderful time spent chronicling the many happenings all those decades ago, at Oldham Theatre Workshop, Harrison Street, The David Johnson Era - an oil painting montage, one of many paintings and drawings depicting the rehearsals and dress-rehearsals of Peter Pan. A stunning performance that we will never forget and for which we thank each and every member of the workshop who pulled out all the stops to make it such a memorable result.


On the left we show the poster, produced from two of Paul's artworks - a lino-cut print of Peter Pan flying over the water, with the OTW motif reproduced from a conte-pencil drawing.

A second photographic montage - this is a Limited-Edition Print that we publish from an original Masterworks oil painting (which is not for sale - being in our private collection) - it shows one of the stage hands taking a much-needed break backstage, during the dress-rehearsals.

And a third photographic montage – showing a drawing and a mixed-media rendition of the same subject.


We had planned to spend a year following Oldham Theatre Workshop, with a small collection of artworks depicting their activities and productions – instead we spent many more years chronicling their work and performance in oils, watercolours, drawing, mixed-media, with an extensive collection attracting much interest from collectors.

Life is made of such brilliant memories, wouldn't you agree!? As ever, we thank you for reading and viewing and send best wishes from Eileen and myself,


Paul and Eileen
