Neverland has arrived for Hunstanton pantomime season
Peter Pan’s Journey to Neverland has been skilfully adapted from J M Barrie’s classic story for The Hunstanton Pantomime by Elaine Verweymeren.
It is directed by the comedic partnership of John Wrigley and Liz Bishopp.
Landing at Hunstanton Town Hall this Yuletide will be Peter Pan and his friends from the magical Neverland.
Come and join Peter (played to perfection by Abigail Brown) as he battles the villainous Captain Hook (Tony Bishopp) and his bumbling crew of misfits (Lynne Haycock, John Wrigley and Lucy Ferrer) as well as his second in command, the loveable Mr Smee (played by the hilarious Liz Bishopp).
However Peter is not alone in his endeavours, he is joined by his loyal friends the mischievous Lost Boys (Elise Navarro, Millie Ling, Lewis Cleland and Imogen Wadsworth) and of course his ever faithful fairy friend Tinkerbell (Catriona Hawke).
Our story begins in the Darling household where Peter listens to the stories that Wendy (played beautifully by Em Atkins) reads to her brothers Michael and John (played by newcomer Bailey Fisher and Gracie Ashley).
He persuades them to join him in Neverland and the journey begins.
The first task is to rescue the feisty Tiger Lily (Macey Jezeph) from the clutches of Captain Hook.
Along the way we also meet Tinkerbell’s streetwise fairy friends, Prosecco and Chardonnay (Eve and Faith Bodenham).
We also encounter mermaids, pirates and of course the crocodile (Sue Murkett), who is a constant threat to Captain Hook.
The adventure starts on Friday, December 27, running until Monday, December 30.
Every child will receive a goodie bag and this year audiences are being encouraged to come in fancy dress as a Pirate, Fairy, Lost Boy or even Peter himself.
