Duckegg Theatre – Peter Pan

November 28, 2014 @ 6:30 PM

A fresh, modern, musical retelling of Peter Pan with words by Haley Cox and music by Phil Collingwood exploring small town mentality, youth aspiration and the challenges of following your dreams. Directed by Gail Mcintyre (West Yorkshire Playhouse Associate Director, Refugee Boy *****) and Musical Direction by Sean Green (Bill Kenwright Company).

It’s five minutes until closing time at Priceland and cashier Wendy Darling takes us into the timeless story of Peter Pan – second star to the left and straight on ’til morning! Throw in a misunderstood Captain Hook, a hot guitarist Peter Pan, a Tinker Bell straight out of ‘TOWIE’ and a sprinkle of fairy dust (oh, and an awesome soundtrack!) and you get a sparkling show guaranteed to get your toes tapping. Though the script was originally developed as a Christmas show it can be adapted to any time of year.

Preview show feedback:

“ three generation of us, saw the show twice and loved it. Brilliant twist on the wonderful Peter Pan story!”
“Absolutely fabulous. It was feel good theatre at its best.”
“Great cast, great music, clever writing, lots of laughs. From minute one I was Hook-ed…”
“Rarely does a feel-good show of this quality appear on the rural touring circuit. I urge you to take a chance on this and ditch visiting a commercial Panto, just for one year—you won’t regret it.” Liverpool Playhouse
“I loved the observational humour with the supermarket staff.”
“The best family friendly play I have seen, Great Humour, Great Writing, Great Everything”
“Absolutely loved it. Hook stole the show. Even my cynical husband and son thoroughly enjoyed it!”
“When I came to see this was not sure what to expect with the Tesco connection. What an absolute hoot! Nearly cried laughing when Hook came out on a trolley minus his trousers!”
“We went as a family with ages ranging from 4 yrs to 70 yrs! It was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Would definitely recommend. “
“Saw Peter Pan show last night! Really fab and highly recommended! I am so glad I didn’t buy tickets for the panto in Grimsby like usual! This was so much better!”
“Great modern twist on Peter Pan. Fantastic performances all round, and Hook’ stole the show”
