Get ‘Hooked’ on Peter Pan with Corrie star

JOIN Peter Pan, Wendy, John and Michael on a magical trip to Never Neverland with this year’s pantomime at Blackfriars Theatre.

All the best-loved characters from the classic J. M. Barrie book will be brought alive in this wickedly funny adaptation by Polka Dot Productions, including the terrifying Captain Hook, who will be played by Coronation Street star Bruce Jones.

Bruce, who played Street slob Les Battersby for many years, will be joined by his bumbling sidekick Smee, and together they will be heading up a team of dastardly pirates out to get the boy who will never grow up and his fleet of Lost Boys.

There will be laughter, fear and wonder at the Spain Lane venue, as the audience follows Peter Pan in his attempts to thwart the evil captain.

Watch as Peter Pan and co soar across the stage, clap your hands and prove you believe in fairies to save Tinkerbell, and remember your way to the mystical land – second star to the right and straight on to morning.

With a hearty helping of fairy dust, some spectacular special effects and some truly amazing flying displays, Peter Pan is one performance you and your family should definitely try and see this Christmas.

The show runs from Friday, December 9, until Tuesday, January 3. Tickets cost £11 and £10.

Discounts are available for schools and group bookings.
