A big budget extravaganza adaptation of J.M Barrie’s much-loved tale Peter Pan flies into Blackpool from Thursday 26 October – Sunday 29 October promising a spectacular spin on the timeless classic adventure.
Following the success of ELF -THE MUSICAL arena tour last year, the same production team headed by the maestro producer Jon Conway are at the helm of a “supersize spectacle” with awe-inspiring special effects and lots of fun.
Boy George said: “I’m really looking forward to playing Captain Hook and showing off my evil side! I make my first entrance on a life size galleon that sails around the stage in front of an amazing water-wall fountain.
Although the show has traditional pantomime elements, it is so much more, being a mix of cirque and spectacular event … and I get a chance to fight a giant animatronic crocodile. What’s not to like?”
The show will bring Hollywood glamour by featuring the stage debut of Dorit Kemsley playing the mermaid. Known across the globe from the celebrated ‘Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills’ tv show, Dorit said “I am so excited to work with George who is a dear friend and godfather to my children Jagger and Phoenix, who will also be in the show as part of Peter Pan’s gang.
The cast of fifty includes a dozen cirque performers, dazzling aerial stunts, a giant battle where the audience throw cannonballs at Hook’s ship and a death-defying escape from a locked water tank by rising comedy star Jordan Conway playing Peter Pan, plus a large troupe of Irish and Highland dancers.
Fabulous animated digital sets redefine the genre with an immersive experience of magic and wonderment that even the most cynical audiences will be blown away by.
PETER PAN – The Arena Spectacular will open at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool on 26th October, England’s largest theatre outside London, with six performances at the same venue up to and including 29th October.
World’s Biggest Productions are back by popular demand, and this time the production is even bigger and better. Producer Jon Conway added: “I am thrilled to be working with Boy George, surely one of the most iconic stars of all time, who will make this production stylish and unique. We use every square inch of the stage and auditorium to deliver a massive production both breathtaking and hilarious. Two huge LED screens make sure nobody ever misses any of the action.”
