Neverland at the Theatre Deli

Neverland at Theatre Delicatessen, Sheffield, 1–31 December 2017, from £16.00 - Book now

This Christmas the Theatre Delicatessen in Sheffield is home to Neverland, an immersive show suitable for ages 14+. Based on Walt Disney’s well-loved tale of Peter Pan, this show offers an interactive element as the audience share the space with the performers.

The show is presented by The Guild of Misrule, who previously produced an interactive and raucous version of The Great Gatsby, where the audience were invited to sip on cocktails when they weren’t learning to Charleston. Non-participation is the soft option here. There’s nothing like getting absorbed in a fantastical show and this is exactly the basis of Neverland.

Dive headfirst into an enchanted world inhabited by mermaids, fairies and rum-swigging pirates. Walk that line between being awake and asleep, rediscover your inner lost child – as Disney famously said, “Growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional”.

A special performance on 23 December includes The Lost Boy’s Christmas Party where you can join Tootles, Nibs, Slightly, Curly and The Twins in celebrating a Neverland style Christmas. Play festive games and dance to a nostalgic setlist until way past your bedtime – but be sure to remember your dancing shoes and keep an eye on your shadow.

The final performance on 31 December is followed by a sparkly New Year’s Eve celebration on the entire set of Neverland. The night promises to be a glitter fuelled cabaret with circus and live music until the early hours.

The Guild of Misrule’s Neverland offers an interactive, thrilling and unique night of theatre in Sheffield this December. And as with most immersive live performance – the more you join in, the better your experience will be. Send 2017 off with a bang.

Please note: Neverland is NOT a seated performance. Neverland is wheelchair accessible.
