Synopsis

This major reworking of the original 1973 show delighted audiences when it played in the Open Air Theatre, Regents Park in 1994. Adapted from the celebrated novel by Arnold Bennett, this is the lively tale of a pushy young opportunist in a Potteries town in the early 1900s. A go-getting personality, his disarmingly sharp practices enable him to win over local ‘society’, outwit influential rivals, sort out his romantic entanglements, and make himself mayor.

A very funny show, with catchy songs, including ‘Moving On’, ‘How Do’ and ‘Typical Machin’.

Synopsis

Sir James Barrie’s timeless tale of the boy who never grew up is reborn as a spectacular musical by Stiles & Drewe and the late Willis Hall. 

The show was first broadcast in 2001 as the New Year’s Eve concert on BBC Radio 3, starring John Thaw, Sheila Hancock and Laura Michelle Kelly. A fuller semi-staged version, with the London Symphony Orchestra, was mounted at the Royal Festival Hall over Christmas 2002 starring Richard Wilson and James Gillan, with Suzannah York as the Storyteller and Lottie Meyer as Wendy.

Since then, Stiles & Drewe extensively revised the show for a stunning new production directed by the highly talented Rachel Kavanagh. Peter Pan – A Musical Adventure reunited Stiles & Drewe with the designer Peter McKintosh (who created the National Theatre’s designs for Honk!), bringing to life the magical world of Neverland with its spectacular scenes of flying, swashbuckling and sheer fantasy.
