For a post Christmas treat there are still a few days left to book tickets to see Peter Pan at The Dukes in Lancaster. Why not book a mid-week family stay at Lancaster House in order to enjoy an evening at the theatre. We sent along our very own Lancaster House theatre critic, John Jesmont, to see the eternally youthful Peter Pan on stage at The Dukes. This is what he had to say…
I would thoroughly recommend a trip to The Dukes Theatre in Lancaster to see the Christmas production of the classic story “Peter Pan”.
Set on Christmas Eve, Peter Pan and Tink take Wendy Darling on the adventure of a lifetime, meeting the mischievous Lost Boys and the terrifying pirate Captain Hook along the way.
This play is an ideal seasonal offering for all the family complete with Pirates, Fairies and a Crocodile – and yes, you will believe a boy can fly. Sing along, laugh, gasp and catch some fairy dust, as J. M. Barrie’s tale is cleverly adapted for all the family by Dukes Artistic Director, Sarah Punshon.
The small cast’s enthusiasm is infectious as they perform as a number of the story’s iconic characters. The songs are catchy throughout – complete with a punk style anthem from the eponymous hero himself.
The Dukes is one of the North West’s leading arts venues, it’s not only a theatre, but home to an independent cinema, arts hub and a very pleasant cafe bar, all showing a wide variety of productions throughout the year.
To book tickets for the theatre, call The Dukes box office on 01524 598500 or visit www.dukes-lancaster.org
