For the first time ever, The World’s Biggest Pantomime Ltd will play in London, presenting Peter Pan at The SSE Arena, Wembley for four performances only.
Starring Martin Kemp as Captain Hook, Bradley Walsh as Mr Smee and Matt Knight as Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie’s original story and characters will be brought to life by a cast of over 100 performers, including a thrilling team of BMX riders, stuntmen and trapeze artists, along with a 7m-long animatronic crocodile. Kemp commented:
“What an amazing opportunity to be playing Captain Cook at Wembley Arena this Christmas! I can’t wait to work with all these wonderfully talented actors, stuntmen and trapeze artists and I know the audience is going to be treated to a real visual feast.”
This new show will be performed across three arena stages on a movie-style Neverland set. The Jolly Roger galleon will sail around the arena in front of a 10,000-gallon water wall. Wherever someone is seated, they will be close to the action with a giant 60 feet-wide LED screen, computer graphic imagery and a live close-up TV-relay. Walsh commented:
“I’m so excited to be appearing in PETER PAN. It really is an extraordinary production, the like of which Wembley has never seen before! It has a life-size galleon, a twenty-five-foot crocodile, plus a cast of over a hundred! It’s a big, bold arena extravaganza and festive treat with something for everyone.”
Prior to London, Peter Pan will appear at the Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham from 20 to 24 December 2017. It is directed by Jon Conway, designed by Wellington Scenic, with lighting design by Jamie Corbidge and sound design by Dave Shepherd.
Peter Pan will play the SSE Arena, Wembley from 29 – 30 December. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
