Last night we went on an ‘awfully big adventure’ to watch Neverland at Nottingham Lakeside Arts. I haven’t visit Lakeside Arts before and didn’t actually know that there was a theatre there until recently so it was a fab discovery to make as we love going to the theatre.
I remember watching a Peter Pan pantomime when I was little and I absolutely loved it, I love the Peter Pan story and was very excited about going to watch Neverland.
From the same creative team that brought you A Christmas Carol in 2013 comes a brand new musical production for families, inspired by J.M.Barrie’s timeless classic about a boy who never wants to grow up.
Meet a particularly cheeky Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, Wendy, grumpy Mr Darling, and of course a certain Captain Hook as we are whisked across the sky to a world of transformation and enchantment…
Neverland is suitable for children age 4 years and over and it opens TODAY and runs until the end of December. Tickets are £8.50 and I really do recommend you go and watch it. The kids loved it, as soon as it ended Bugs (age 5) asked if we can watch it again. He was laughing and totally engaged with it the whole way through, which for a 5 year old as fidgety as my 5 year old is amazing.
There are only three members of cast in Neverland and it lasts about an hour. It is funny and touching, the actors and actress are fantastic and have beautiful voices. It was totally different to what I expected it to be but not at all in a bad way, just different (you’ll have to go and see it to see how) and we LOVED it!
Lakeside have been working with local schools and professional artists to transform the Wallner Gallery for their Christmas production, you can see just a bit of their work above. It is really worth visiting, the kids loved it! Even if you aren’t going to the show I would go and visit and have a cuppa in their cafe too 🙂
* We received free tickets to watch the Neverland dress rehearsal which took place last night. I wrote this post because we thoroughly enjoyed the show and wanted to recommend it to you.
