Peter Pan Birmingham tickets
Peter Pan - Christmas in Neverland takes the tradition of a classic British pantomime and magnifies it to the massive scale of the Barclaycard Arena Birmingham. The result is a spectacular and unforgettable seven shows over five days that are packed full of festive fun for the whole family. Bradley Walsh (as Mr Smee) and Ross Kemp (as Captain Hook) join a cast of over 100 performers in bringing to life a thrilling adventure featuring everyone's favourite boy who never grew up -- Peter Pan. All the other beloved characters created by J. M. Barrie join Peter in Neverland, together presenting a panto like none you've seen before.
Peter Pan Birmingham's background
Peter Pan Birmingham is presented by The World's Biggest Panto, an entertainment company who in recent years has also produced Cinderella and Snow White. The venue for Peter Pan - Christmas in Neverland, the Barclaycard Arena Birmingham, was the largest indoor arena in the country when it opened in 1991 (at the time called the National Indoor Arena). With a capacity of 15,800, the audience for Peter Pan Birmingham will be large and lively -- all the better for choruses of "He's behind you!" and "Oh, no it isn't!"
Peter Pan was created by Scottish playwright and novelist J. M. Barrie around 1902. In his 1904 play and the 1911 novel Peter and Wendy, the boy who wouldn't grow up was joined by The Darlings, Wendy, Michael and John, as well as Tinkerbell, Tiger Lily and the Lost Boys of Neverland, who all might make appearances in Peter Pan - Christmas in Neverland. The baddies in the show will be Peter Pan's age-old adversaries, the dastardly Captain Hook and his right-hand-man Mr Smee, and of course Hook's nemesis, the crocodile.
The Peter Pan Birmingham experience
The stars of Peter Pan - Christmas in Neverland are comedian and host of The Chase, Bradley Walsh, who is playing Mr Smee, and Martin Kemp of Spandau Ballet and Eastenders fame as Captain Hook. Among the larger cast of over 100 performers are daring BMX stunt riders, aerial mermaids dazzling the audience on the flying trapeze, circus acts, slapstick artists, musicians and more. All the amusements and action take place over three arena stages, plus a giant, 60-foot LED screen displaying stunning graphics and a relay of the live show. A life-size Jolly Roger galleon will sail around the arena, with watery special effects by way of a 10,000-gallon water wall. An enormous animatronic crocodile will also thrill audience members old and young with its menacing tick-tock.
