In front of a big pizza pie moon, the well-cast Darling children try to never, ever grow up as they learn to fly to the second star on the right and then straight on till morning with a clean-cut Peter Pan and his BFFF (Best Fairy Friend Forever) Tinkerbell. Writer and director Richard Tunley once again succeeds in bringing RCT Theatres’ locale a pantomime for local people, with plenty of laughs written directly for the area as well as contemporary popular culture references to twerking and Strictly Come Dancing.
Frank Vickery amuses as usual as the dame, Nanny McSmee. RCT Theatres’ aerial work specialists Citrus Arts provide an enchanting blend of circus and dance with their UV rope work and choreography of flying scenes throughout the show, entrancing big kids and small. A suitably hapless pirate crew bestow slapstick laughs.
The song sheet includes Blondie’s One Way or Another, Katy Perry’s Roar and Disney’s Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah, with the best vocals provided by Laura Clements (Tiger Lily/Mrs Darling) and Rebecca-Jayne Poole (Pirate Bess).
The green and gold glitzy finale includes magical snowfall and will encourage you to leave thinking wonderful festive thoughts.
