Chesterfield Pantomime – Adventures of Peter Pan
Families are in for a real nautical treat with the Chesterfield pantomime at the Pomegranate Theatre.
This pantomime season sees the very first performances of the Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan on the Pomegranate’s stage in the theatre’s nearly 70 year history.
Starring as Captain Hook is EastEnders and Hollyoaks actor Sam Attwater. Sam also won the 2009 series of ITV’s Dancing on Ice.
He says: “In the past Captain Hook has been a really evil character. I’m hoping to put in a bit of a comedy twist.”
Liberty X lead singer, Kelli Young, stars as both as Tiger Lily and also as Mrs Darling, mother to Wendy and her brothers Michael and John.
Kelli is excited to be in Chesterfield “It’s a lovely place and a lovely looking theatre. It’s good for me because my mum lives in Derby and my brother lives in Sheffield.”
Anthony Sahota, from the BBC’s Let it Shine stars as Peter Pan.
Completing the cast are Philip Day as Dame Able Mable, Lucy Edge as Wendy and James Percy as Smee.
Word from the theatre is that Wendy is in danger thanks to the dastardly Captain Hook but you’ll have to book to find out if Peter, Tiger-Lily and the Lost Boys will be able to save Wendy.
