Peter Pan

30 July 2023 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm

directed by Myles Leon

An Awfully Big Pantomine Adventure based on the novel by J.M. Barrie, with songs and dances, written by Tom Whalley

All children, except one, grow up… except Peter Pan, who is on the hunt for his pesky shadow, Peter Pan meets the Darling children in their Nursery. With a sprinkling of fairy dust, Wendy, John and Michael leave Nana the Dog behind on a flight to Neverland – a magical place home to the Lost boys, Mermaids, Indians and the most villainous pirate of them all; Captain Hook! With Mrs Starkey and her bumbling son Smee by his side, Hook seeks revenge against Peter Pan who fed his left hand to a tick-tocking crocodile hungry for the rest of him. Will the boy who never grew-up rid Neverland of Captain Hook forever? Will the Darlings find their way home to London?

Find out in this swashbuckling pantomime that will have you ‘hooked’!
