A Musical Adventure
Grand Opera House York
Wednesday 20 – Saturday 23 November
Based on J.M. Barrie's original play with permission from Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children
A mischievous boy who can fly and who never ages, Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood adventuring on the small island of Neverland as the leader of his gang, the Lost Boys, interacting with mermaids, Native Americans, fairies, pirates, and occasionally ordinary children from the world outside of Neverland.
Sir James Barrie’s timeless tale of the boy who never grew up is reborn as a spectacular musical by Stiles & Drewe and the late Willis Hall. Pick Me Up Theatre are proud to present the York Premiere Production.
George Stiles says: “. . .The score for Pan is one of our favourite pieces of work. It's a show with a stunning world of pirates, Lost Boys, Mermaids, Crocodile and flying children!
The score revels in being able to blend the great British traditions of Gilbert & Sullivan with a contemporary world of dreams and adventure.
I think Anthony’s lyrics really shine and have the same delight in the language that so infects the Barrie play – they were a joy to set.”
For a second before you go to sleep tonight take a moment, close your eyes and imagine, fly and visit your other land where the child never never grows up. . ."
