Tickets – Peter Pan runs until 6th January 2014

For the third year running Paul Hendy and Emily Wood wrote and Evolution Productions produced the annual Fairfield Halls pantomime. Peter Pan had a lot to live up to after the success of Jack and The Beanstalk last year and I have to say it was an entertaining, rip-roaring yarn that kept the audience, young and old alike, amused and laughing away throughout.

One of the main stars of the show, Captain Cook, played by Eastender’s Steve McFadden, was entertaining as the pantomime baddie and it was novel to see him out of character on the occasions when he sang, danced and delivered bad jokes.

Mrs Smee, played by Quinn Patrick was excellent, holding the show together with their comedy and playing to the gallery.

Nathaniel Morrison, playing Starkey/Brian and Myrtle was consistently amusing with his deliberate scene stealing over acting performance.

The set was amazing and seeing Peter Pan and his ‘lost boys’ flying around the set was brilliant. All in all this was a good, fun adaptation of the classic JM Barrie story of the boy who wouldn’t grow up.

The pantomime is on until 6th January 2014 and I would thoroughly recommend this as one for the whole family to enjoy.

    I saw this show with my child and he loved it. It was very colourful, dramatic fighting and though a fairy tale , real in some parts as Peter Pan struggles not having parents and finds a family and love. Love the stage props and scenery very life like; we laughed a lot, especially at the paddling boat scene and deliberate death bad acting by a black actor who acted really well!!!
