Peter Pan

26 June — 11 July, Playhouse, QPAC

Presented in association with Power Arts

Take the hand of Peter Pan and come on a journey to Neverland…

Wendy and her two brothers literally fly into the adventure of a lifetime when Peter Pan leads them to a fantastical dream world of fairies, mermaids, pirates, and one very large crocodile. 
With swashbuckling swordfights, giant puppets and breathtaking flying sequences, Trey McIntyre’s Peter Pan uses a brilliant mix of dance and theatre to tell the tale of the boy who wouldn’t grow up. Told from a child’s perspective, this imaginative, poignant ballet re-interprets J M Barrie’s famous story with wit, verve and a distinctly modern spirit. 
Peter Pan may not have grown up, but his story has.
