Pantomime: Peter Pan

  • Pantomime: Peter Pan
  • Pantomime: Peter Pan

Great Ormond Street Hospital has kindly given permission for J.M. Barrie’s story Peter Pan to be adapted by Teresa Grinter into a pantomime script for Bridport Pantomime Players.

The story starts with the Darling Family strolling home through the streets of London under the watchful eye of the local policeman Sarah Light.

Amy Carlile is Mrs Darling, with James Oldfield a newcomer to the Players as Mr. Darling.

Their three children Wendy, Michael and John who befriend Peter Pan are Laura Gray, Emily Halsey and Ru Oldfield, and in charge of the family although they don’t realise it, is Greg Horton as Nanathe nursemaid.

All is well in the nursery that night until Amy Day as Peter Pan flies in through the window, with the mischievous Tinkerbell played by Sarah Williams and wake up the Darling children.

With sprinklings of fairy dust they then have a magical time teaching them how to fly.

Arriving in Neverland they encounter the pirates led by Jess Goldstone as Mr Smee. The nasty Captain Hook James Oldfield is terrified of the Crocodile who pursues him and ticking away in control of this cunning croc is Olivia Grinter .

Further adventures lead to an encounter with Big Chief Brown Cow, ably played by Teresa Grinter, with Justine Gawen as his lively daughter Tiger Lily.

Amongst the Lost Boys are Tootles Ziggy Gray, Nibs Alice Tuck, and Slightly Hatti Amos together with two not-very-nice-to-know mermaids, Kwant Gardner and Sue Croker.

Together with a full supporting cast of Londoners, Pirates and Native Americans, why not join the Bridport Pantomime Players and fly off with them on this magical trip to Neverland?

Venue: Electric Palace
