FOR PETER PAN AT LEEDS PLAYHOUSE
With opening night just around the corner, the multi-talented cast of WENDY & PETER PAN are soaring to new heights ready to transport audiences to Neverland as Ella Hickson’s spectacular adaptation of the JM Barrie classic prepares to take flight in Leeds.
Here’s a first glimpse of WENDY & PETER PAN played by Amber James and Pierro Niel-Mee flying round the rehearsal room to escape the clutches of Captain Hook played by David Birrell and his motly crew of swashbuckling pirates. The ensemble company of actors are working with Co-Directors Jonathan Munby and Rupert Hands alongside Movement Director Lucy Hind to create this spectacular production filled with big dance numbers, sword-fighting battles and a magical set to transport audiences passed the second star to the right and straight on to Neverland at Leeds Playhouse this festive season.
Telling the timeless tale of love, courage and the friendship between a boy who never grows up and a girl who has had to grow up too soon, this reimagined classic is packed with theatrical magic, beautiful designs by Colin Richmond, an epic score by Japanese composer Shuhei Kamimura, flying and plenty of laughs. It promises to be a truly unforgettable journey for all the family. Japanese video artistry will be cleverly combined with the reinvigorated classic British story to give the production a unique international shared vision.
WENDY & PETER PAN, a Leeds Playhouse and Bunkamura production, will run at Leeds Playhouse from 18 November 2021 – 22 January 2022.
