Return to Pantoland 23 June – 30 July 2017
Two weeks ago producer Bonnie Lythgoe announced that one of Australia’s favourite (and hardest working) performers Todd McKenney will play ‘Captain Hook’ in the world premiere of The Adventures of Peter Pan & Tinker Bell.
Bonnie is thrilled to announce the wonderful cast who will join ‘Captain Hook’ are Tim Maddren as ‘Peter Pan’; Jaime Hadwen as ‘Tinker Bell’; Katrina Retallick as ‘Mrs Darling’ and ‘Mimi the Magic Mermaid; Robyn Loau as ‘Tiger Lilly’ and sharing the role of ‘Smee’ will be Mark Jones and Kev Orkian.
2017 promises to be a big year for panto in Australia as it will be the first time ever that Bonnie Lythgoe Productions will present their world class pantomime outside of Sydney with the show opening on 23 June at the Gold Coast Arts Centre playing to 1 July. Peter Pan will then fly into Sydney’s State Theatre from 7 to 16 July then up and away to Melbourne landing in the Comedy Theatre from 21 to 30 July.
This enchanting story will feature sumptuous glittering sets, spectacular effects, gorgeous fairytale costumes, fantastic song and dance numbers, infectious and riotous comedy, magic and bags of audience participation.
In March Bonnie and Todd will hold auditions on the Gold Coast to cast the Lost Boys. The roles of Wendy, Michael and John Darling will also be announced at this time.
