This year, Peter Pan is getting ready to fly into the New Theatre Royal as it stages its biggest Christmas Season yet.

 

The show, which will run from Thursday, December 13 to Monday, December 31, stars New Theatre Royal favourite, Timothy Lucas, who wowed audiences as Frederick in last year’s hit production of Beauty and the Beast.

 

Timothy will play Captain Hook and joins the production straight from the UK tour of Cilla the Musical.

 

Speaking of his return to Portsmouth, Timothy said: “I can’t wait to bring this iconic story to the stage of the beautiful New Theatre Royal. The script, the designs, the cast all look set to be stunning.”

 

Also starring are Hannah McIver as Wendy, Samuel Bailey as Peter, and musical and stand-up artist Ariane Barnes as Lily, who joins from Showstoppers The Improvised Musical.

 

Speaking about playing the part of Wendy, Hannah said: “There’s a bit of Wendy, Peter and Hook in all of us, in how we come to terms with growing up. Audiences are in for a treat.”

 

Joining them will be musical theatre actors Yasmine Gazzal as Tinker Bell, Joshua Crowther as Smee, Molly Cattanach as Mrs Darling, Rebecca Frew as Starkey, Liam Glyd as Neptune and Harry Robinson as Blackbeard.

 

The production is led by one of the UK’s leading Christmas show writers, Scott Ramsay, who is also director of the New Theatre Royal.

 

“It’s going to be a hugely magical and stirring show, for audiences of all ages,” he said.

 

“We’ve secured a richly diverse and talented cast to bring this evocative tale to life, and for audiences to identify with. As well as our wonderful professional cast, we’re also weaving in young performers from the local area to play the Darling brothers and Lost Boys.”

 

Peter Pan is presented by arrangement with the Great Ormond Street Children’s Charity.

 

Tickets range from £10 to £29.
