A big budget extravaganza adaptation of J.M Barrie’s much-loved tale Peter Pan is set to bring a little slice of Neverland to Aberdeen’s P&J Live on the 27th & 28th of December 2023, promising a spectacular spin on the timeless classic adventure.
Following the success of Elf -The Musical arena tour last year, the same production team headed by the maestro producer Jon Conway are at the helm of a “supersize spectacle” with awe-inspiring special effects and lots of fun.
Boy George said: “I’m really looking forward to playing Captain Hook and showing off my evil side! I make my first entrance on a life-size galleon that sails around the stage in front of an amazing water-wall fountain.
Although the show has traditional pantomime elements, it is so much more, being a mix of cirque and spectacular event… and I get a chance to fight a giant animatronic crocodile. What’s not to like?”
The show will bring Hollywood glamour by featuring the stage debut of Dorit Kemsley playing the mermaid. Known across the globe from the celebrated ‘Real Housewives Of Beverley Hills’ tv show, Dorit said “I am so excited to work with George who is a dear friend and god-father to my children Jagger and Phoenix, who will also be in the show as part of Peter Pan’s gang. Prior filming commitments mean Dorit can’t appear in Liverpool and Cardiff, but her debut will be featured in her RHOBH tv show.
The cast of fifty includes a dozen cirque performers, dazzling aerial stunts, a giant battle where the audience throw cannonballs at Hook’s ship and a death-defying escape from a locked water tank by rising comedy star Jordan Conway playing Peter Pan, plus a large troupe of Irish and Highland dancers.
Fabulous animated digital sets redefine the genre with an immersive experience of magic and wonderment that even the most cynical audiences will be blown away by.
