It’s panto time again at Sheringham Little Theatre and there’s a taste of the traditional with a modern twist as well as great fun for all ages.
This version of Peter Pan has two crocodiles, Tick and Tock, sword fights, Lost Boys and a very feisty fairy with bags of  attitude. It’s the story of the boy who never grew up, well-known by children and grown-ups alike.
The actors in this production have made it very much their own. There are clever and imaginative scenes. Wendy and Peter flying over the roof tops of London, straight on till morning following the star to Neverland, took the audience on the journey with them. Peter Pan (George Caporn) led his band of lost boys and the Darling children, Wendy (Gemma Wilson), John (Zakk Judd-Phillips) and Michae l(Mikey Fotis) into many scrapes, which in true panto spirit, was done with song and laughter.
The villainous Captain Hook (Neil Paris) had a right-hand woman, Ms Smee (James Lavender). In true panto spirit she was the dame to top all dames, very funny with an amazing wardrobe of dresses and hats but best of all had an instant rapport with the audience.
Starky (Rik Warren) the faithful but bumbling pirates mate kept the audience entertained with his merry quips. Tiger Lily, the indian princess (Rachel Feetham), is a star in the making, also no Peter Pan would be complete without a fairy Tinkerbelle (Nicola Barney) the right mixture of magic and mischief. So believe in fairies and open your mind to magic, visit the Sheringham Little Theatre, The performances are on until January 1
