The croc is ticking!

Peter pan title surrounded by fairy dust

Thu 13 Dec 2018

Derby LIVE and Little Wolf Entertainment invite Derby audiences on an awfully big adventure in Christmas 2019 as a brand-new swashbuckling pantomime  sets sail for Derby Arena.

Peter, Tinker Bell, Wendy and a very odd looking woman, who refuses to grow up, are in for a high-flying action-packed adventure. The lost boys and musical mermaids will take on some very potty pirates and the most dastardly villain of them all – Captain Hook!

Second star to the right and straight on till morning! The team behind Beauty and the Beast and Jack and the Beanstalk are back to fly audiences to magical Neverland. With spectacular effects, barrel loads of laughs, jokes that grab you hook, line and sinker, and more than a sprinkling of fairy dust, this promises to be the perfect PAN-to.

This year’s pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk has already received multiple stand-out reviews.

Boom magazine – “A show not to be missed if you are looking for a fantastic Christmas trip out.”
