Peter Pan: A swashbuckling dance adventure!

Peter Pan: A swashbuckling dance adventure!

Peter Pan is a fantasy-filled ballet for the young at heart - and for those who refuse to grow up. Join Peter, Tinker Bell and Captain Hook on a journey into an exciting imaginary world, from the Darling family's nursery to Neverland - home to the mermaid's lagoon, the Lost Boy's lair and Hook's evil pirate ship.

A playful combination of theatre and classical dance brings this family favourite to life. With picture book inspired designs, dreamy lighting and an exquisite score, Peter Pan will captivate and enchant.
