From Wednesday November 20 to Saturday November 23 The Grand Opera House will play host to the classic tale of a mischievous boy who can fly and who never ages. But this time it’s musical!
Sir James Barrie’s timeless story is being retold once again.
Pick Me Up Theatre presents the York Premiere production of the musical from George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, based on the book by the late Willis Hall.
Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood adventuring on the small island of Neverland as the leader of his gang, the Lost Boys, interacting with mermaids, Native Americans, fairies, pirates, and occasionally ordinary children from the world outside of Neverland. Expect his ethereal existence to come to life through the clever lighting and the obligatory flying harness.
George Stiles said: “The score for Pan is one of our favourite pieces of work. It’s a show with a stunning world of pirates, Lost Boys, Mermaids, Crocodile and flying children.
“The score revels in being able to blend the great British traditions of Gilbert & Sullivan with a contemporary world of dreams and adventure.
“I think Anthony’s lyrics really shine and have the same delight in the language that so infects the Barrie play – they were a joy to set.”
