FREE PICTURE:  Peter Pan Moat Brae Trust's National Storytelling Centre appeal launch by Joanna Lumley, Dumfries, Scotland, UK, 26/06/2015
Scottish Youth Theatre and Moat Brae Trust collaborate to bring Bandelero the Bandit and scenes from Peter Pan to the stage:
Performers from Scottish Youth Theatre from around Scotland perform famous children's author JM Barrie's lost play "Bandelero The Bandit" in Moat Brae House.
 The play was written by Barrie as a pupil at the next-door Dumfries Academy and performed there in 1877 when he was just 17. He later thought it had been destroyed, but was recently discovered in the USA.  Moat Brae House Trust  today launched it's final drive for £1.5M to become Scotland's National Storytelling Centre.
  Pictured are Scottish Youth Theatre actors (from left):  Imogen Cramen (correct), Chris McDougall, Tom Higgins, Euan Ferguson, Katee McCullach (correct), Mark Walker, Sean Langdon, Campbell McKenna and Jonathan Combe (correct).
