Jennifer Saunders & Julian Clary lead in the annual pantomime at the London Palladium.
Wendy, John, and Michael Darling are three siblings from London who, after a chance meeting with magical young boy, Peter Pan, fly to Neverland with him and his fairy companion, Tinker Bell. In Neverland, they meet the Lost Boys, a group of boys who were abandoned by their parents and live with Peter. However, they also encounter Captain Hook, a notorious pirate who seeks revenge against Peter for cutting off his hand and feeding it to a crocodile...
Starring Jennifer Saunders as Captain Hook and Julian Clary as Smee, the cast also includes Palladium panto mainstays Paul Zerdin, Nigel Havers, Gary Wilmot, and Rob Madge.
N.B. Parental discretion is advised due to innuendo.
“The production even answers the charge that there’s too little here for youngsters by inviting kids from the audience up on stage for a joyfully silly game, sweetly managed by Zerdin. A high-flying hit.”
"Call them overblown, call them an orgy of in-jokes, call them so innuendo-laden that they are barely family friendly any more, but Michael Harrison’s mega-budget shows know exactly what they are about."
“In this production from Crossroads Pantomimes, producer, director and writer Michael Harrison throws out much of the plot and lavishes the story with glittering set pieces, breathtaking dance routines and an array of glorious costumes...As an entertainment, it is outstanding, with a camp aesthetic to rival anything in the West End since”
