Fly into the school holidays with the ultimate pirate adventure when ‘Disney’s Peter Pan Jr’ brings its swashbuckling magic to the Peoples Theatre from June 6 to July 31.
Join Peter, Tinker Bell, Captain Hook, Mr Smee, the Lost Boys and Tiger Lily, as well as Wendy, John and Michael Darling as they fire up young imaginations with their amazing adventures in Never Land.
Directors Jill Girard and Keith Smith have once again assembled a dynamic cast of experienced professional actors to bring to life JM Barrie’s classic tale of the mischievous boy who can fly – and who stubbornly refuses to grow up. More than 100 years since the play was first staged, the story of Peter Pan remains a much-loved favourite that evokes the ideal of everlasting, adventure-filled youth.
Audiences can expect fantastic animated flying sequences and thrilling enacted fight scenes, coupled with the storytelling flair, engaging musical numbers and fun interaction that audiences of all ages have come to expect from the Peoples Theatre, based at the Joburg Theatre in Braamfontein. With a set by Grant Knottenbelt, costumes by Linda Wilson, special effects costumes by Trudie Ströh and choreography by Sandy Dyer, ‘Disney’s Peter Pan Jr’ is set to entrance and delight these winter holidays.
The musical stars Phillip Schnetler as Peter Pan ; LJ Urbani as Captain Hook/Mr Darling; Clive Gilson as Smee/Nana (the dog) and the Indian chief; Noni Mkhonto as Tinker Bell (pictured above); Kayli Smith as Mrs Darling and Tiger Lily; and Samantha Aria as Pirate/Indian/Maid.
* Performance times are Mondays to Fridays at 9am and 11am (during the school term); and on Saturdays, certain Sundays and government school holidays at 10.30am and 2.30pm.
