Alexander Vlahos (BBC’s Versailles & Merlin) has been confirmed to star as Captain Hook in a revival of the original 1904 Peter Pan play by J.M. Barrie. The production will also be the first Park Theatre production ever to feature flying effects.
Co-starring Nickcolia King-N’Da as Peter Pan and directed by Jonathan O’Boyle, the renowned family favourite from Neverland promises to sprinkle a little fairy dust over London this Christmas.
Continuing J.M. Barrie’s love and support of Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, 5% of all royalties from this production will go directly to Great Ormond Street.
In 1904, J.M. Barrie premiered one of the greatest adventures to ever play on a theatrical stage. Filled with mermaids, pirates and fairies, lost boys and crocodiles, this is the stunning original story of the boy who could fly.
Director Jonathan O’Boyle said: “It’s a real privilege to be directing J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan this Christmas at Park Theatre. It’s a story full of magic and wonder and has been part of our history for over a century. Our contemporary vision for the show will use Barrie’s brilliant original text and will bring the magical play right up to date for audiences old and new.”
Peter Pan is at Park Theatre 5th December 2018 to 5th January 2019.
