Wendy and Peter Pan fly across the bright moon in a starry night sky

Wendy and Peter Pan

Christmas 2018
Wendy and Peter Pan
adapted by Ella Hickson, from the book by J.M. Barrie
directed Eleanor Rhode

Join us at The Lyceum this Christmas to experience one of the world’s best loved stories about the boy who never grows up from Scottish writer J.M. Barrie.

Follow the fearless Wendy as she flies with Peter to Neverland - a world of dastardly pirates, feisty fairies and raucous lost boys.

This adaptation has all the magic and wonder of the original, as Wendy and Peter fly together above the rooftops and follow ‘the second star on the right and straight on till morning’ to Neverland. There they find all is not well in the kingdom of the Lost Boys, as the villainous Captain Hook wreaks havoc, can Wendy and Peter band together with fearsome fairy Tiger Lily and the irrepressible Tinkerbell to win the day?

Full of fairy-dust, adventure and all your favourite characters this magical story is everything a Christmas treat should be.

Recommended for ages 5+

Flying supported by Stephen Dunn.

What is a Relaxed performance?
Relaxed performances are open to everyone, but the environment has been specifically adapted for families with children with an Autistic Spectrum Condition, individuals with sensory and communication disorders, those with learning disabilities and anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed environment.

How is the show adapted?
There is a relaxed attitude to noise from the audience, the lights in the auditorium remain on low throughout the show, sudden loud noises and effects in the production are softened and audience members are free to leave and re-enter the auditorium at any point.  We also have additional staff on hand to assist with seating and access around the Theatre, wheelchair capacity is increased  and there will be a Chill Out Room, where a space is made available for audience members who need a bit of quiet time before and during the performance.

The relaxed performance is open to everyone but patrons with a learning or physical disability, autistic spectrum condition or sensory or communication disorder are especially welcome 

We will also create and email you a Visual Story Pack to introduce you to the performance before you come to the show.
