Peter Pan, the Never Ending Story
Twists, turns and a generous sprinkling of fairy dust. Your at-a-glance guide to the plot.
A virtually immersive show
Walls, forests and buildings dissolve, disappear and miraculously re-form. Waterfalls cascade out of the sky and lush rivers wind across the stage. Shooting stars, dreamy sky-scrapes and London roof-top scenes. Pirates with cutlasses rampaging round rigging battling in mortal combat with Lost Boys bouncing and whirling. This isn’t something you just watch: it is virtually immersive.
PURE, SIMPLE SENSE OF WONDERMENT AND MAGIC
All these effects are in the service of one fundamental thing. And that thing is the pure, simple sense of wonderment and magic, which lies at the very heart of JM Barrie’s deeply English classic. This is what has ensured that the work endures. This is what has endeared it to generations of children (and adults) since it first saw the light of day. This is the spirit that this production both honors and respects. It’s the open, honest emotional truth of this show which is just as striking as any of the spectacular effects.
ESSENTIAL FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT
There’s an original score which wraps itself round a treasure chest of 16 top tracks; from Robbie Williams to Rod Steward, from Supertramp to Seal and Puccini. Peter Pan, The Never Ending Story is the essential family entertainment. It’s magic, it’s exciting, it’s enthralling, it’s bewitching, it’s fun, it’s live adventure. It’s spectacular.
Timeless, classic, romantic, magical. Simply spectacular.
THE WONDERFUL STORY OF A BOY WHO REFUSES TO GROW UP
Peter Pan spends his days on the imaginary island Neverland where he is the leader of The Lost Boys. Each night he visits London and during one of his nocturnal visits, he lands in the bedroom of Wendy and her little brothers. He teaches them to fly and persuades them to go with him to Neverland; a dream island, peopled with elves, pirates, Indians and a host of fabulous characters. No grownups tell you what to do – it’s all about having fun! However, during their tour of the island they are taken prisoner by the Indians who think they have kidnapped Tiger Lily, the chief ’s daughter.
It soon becomes apparent that Captain Hook – the arch-enemy of Peter Pan who has been trying to catch and kill him for years – and his pirates have taken Tiger Lily. Peter Pan manages to save Tiger Lily from death and rescue her from the pirates. The Indians release Peter Pan and his friends, but they are still not free of the nasty old pirates.
Captain Hook discovers the hideaway of Wendy and the children and takes them prisoner. He hopes that this will tempt Peter Pan out of his hiding place. After an exciting duel between Peter Pan and Captain Hook Peter Pan saves Wendy and her brothers in spectacular style. All the children return to London, but Peter Pan remains in Neverland. He is after all the boy who would not grow up…
