Simon Callow and Bonnie Langford lead the cast of Richmond theatre’s enchanting festive pantomime Peter Pan.
Fly away on a journey of wonder and excitement with Peter Pan, Wendy and the Lost Boys as they embark on their awfully big adventure to save Tinkerbell from Captain Hook and his crew of dastardly pirates.
With sparkling, elaborate new scenery, the magical world of Neverland has never looked so good. This swashbuckling, spectacular Peter Pan at Richmond theatre is set to bring audiences the best in Christmas family entertainment.
Langford dons the green tights of Peter Pan to play the boy who never grew up. A theatrical favourite both in panto season and all year round, Langford found fame as a child performer with credits including the classic film Bugsy Malone. She has been a stalwart of the British show business scene ever since, most recently drawing gasps of wonder for her feats of daring on reality show Dancing On Ice, and donning the famous fishnets of West End musical Chicago.
Callow is one of Britain’s most respected Shakespearean performers, but will be swapping Bard for beard to play the nefarious Captain Hook in Peter Pan. His most recent outings on the London stage include squeezing into the fat suit of Count Fosco in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Woman In White.
The Croc is ticking and flights to Neverland are now boarding, so Hook your tickets for a fantastic festive treat for the whole family that will leave you thinking happy thoughts! (You may even get to sit in the same seat that Johnny Depp famously used when he played JM Barrie in the film Finding Neverland, filmed in Richmond!)
