Action to the Word in association with Glynis Henderson Productions will present a new take on J.M Barrie’s classic story at the Pleasance Theatre from the 29th November.
Based on the most famous children’s story of all time, The Lost Boy Peter Pan is a journey past the second star to the right and on until morning, featuring the songs of The Beatles played live on stage by a cast of actor/ musicians. Searching for the perfect mother, Peter finds Wendy Darling and her brothers, taking them to his home in Neverland. Will they ever return? Will they ever grow up?
This new adventure will offer an insight into Peter Pan’s life before he meets Wendy, offering a fresh look at the story. Featuring some of the biggest Beatles hits of all time, this new production is the perfect alternative for pantomime over the festive period.
Director and adaptor Alexandra Spencer-Jones said: “For me, the music of The Beatles might as well underscore childhood entirely. I spent my adolescence listening to stories as to when my mum used to pop to The Cavern to hear The Beatles play. The Beatles, practically children themselves when they started making music, to me – are the soundtrack to childhood. I looked for what I deemed the absolute tale of childhood and came immediately to Neverland and a story about a boy who did not want to grow up.”
The cast for the production is set to include: Toby Falla, Hannah Haines, Wesley Lineham, Joshua Leese, Georgie Parker, Olivia Warren and Olivia Warren.
The Lost Boy Peter Pan will play at the Pleasance Theatre from the 29th November until the 7th January 2018. For more information visit: https://www.pleasance.co.uk/event/lost-boy-peter-pan#overview
