Peter Pan

25 October — 5 November, Playhouse, QPAC

Presented in association with PowerArts


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

Wendy and her two brothers literally fly into the adventure of a lifetime when Peter Pan leads them to a fantastical imaginary world of fairies, mermaids, pirates, and one very large crocodile.

With swashbuckling swordfights, over-sized 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 never grew up. Told from a child’s perspective, this imaginative 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.
