Wendy & Peter Pan
Royal Lyceum, Edinburgh
Follow the fearless Wendy as she flies with Peter to Neverland - a world of dastardly pirates, feisty fairies and raucous lost boys.
This adaptation has all the magic and wonder of the original, as Wendy and Peter fly together above the rooftops and follow ‘the second star on the right and straight on till morning’ to Neverland. There they find all is not well in the kingdom of the Lost Boys, as the villainous Captain Hook wreaks havoc, can Wendy and Peter band together with fearsome fairy Tiger Lily and the irrepressible Tinkerbell to win the day?
Full of fairy-dust, adventure and all your favourite characters this magical story is everything a Christmas treat should be.
