Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, the Lost Boys, Captain Hook, …. Although we may all be familiar with the enduring magic of the Peter Pan tale, this exciting new re-imagining presents the adventure for the first time from Wendy Darling’s perspective and we can’t wait to know her story.
It’s a Rolls Royce of a collaboration between the Leeds-based tutti frutti productions (whose recent WiLd! – the story of a boy with ADHD drew critical acclaim), York Theatre Royal and leading children’s playwright Mike Kenny. With this lot we can certainly expect a brilliant story, stunning costume and set design and mesmerising movement and music.
Waterside have a tradition of doing things differently at Christmas (presenting Moominland Midwinter last year) with Christmas shows that present all the necessary magic, adventure and sparkle while going a little deeper. We love that little ones with no prior knowledge of this classic story will get a great introduction to it while older kids, parents and grandparents will experience a beautiful, fresh approach.
