National Theatre Live presents PETER PAN


‘Spellbindingly imaginative. A dazzling production.’ Radio Times

All children, except one, grow up…

When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow, headstrong Wendy helps him to reattach it. In return, she is invited to Neverland, where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook await. A riot of magic, music and make-believe ensues.

A delight for children and adults alike, Sally Cookson (NT Live: Jane Eyre) directs this wondrously inventive production, a co-production with Bristol Old Vic theatre.

A brilliant, acclaimed show for a family audience - captivating and funny, with elements to delight and entertain both kids and parents.

Some surprise twists make it a refreshing, new take. (Captain Hook is played by a woman!)

Inventive staging – including plenty of flying

Captured live at the National Theatre, a recorded performance of JM Barrie’s much-loved tale screens in cinemas.

Tickets: Adult $25 / Concession $23 / Groups 10+ $20 / special school group prices available
Tickets MUST be purchased online or via Hamilton PAC box office.
