For the first time ever, The World’s Biggest Pantomime Ltd will play in London, presenting Peter Pan at The SSE Arena, Wembley for four performances only, on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 December 2017.
Starring Bradley Walsh as Mr Smee, Martin Kemp as Captain Hook, and Matt Knight as Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie’s original story and characters will be brought to life by a cast of over 100 performers, including a team of BMX riders, stuntmen and trapeze artists, including a 7m long animatronic crocodile.
The show will be performed across three arena stages on a movie-style Neverland set. The Jolly Roger galleon will sail around the arena in front of a 10,000 gallon water wall, with all the action relayed on a giant 60 feet-wide LED screen, with computer graphic imagery and live close-ups.
Bradley Walsh’s acting credits include DS Ronnie Brooks in Law & Order: UK, Danny Baldwin in Coronation Street (won Best Actor at The Royal Television Society Awards) and Dave Dodds in the feature film Mike Bassett: England Manager. In November 2016, he released his debut album, Chasing Dreams, which became the biggest-selling debut album by a British artist in 2016.
Martin Kemp’s acting credits include Reggie Kray alongside his brother Gary as Ronnie Kray in the film The Krays, Steve Owen in EastEnders, Sam Phillips in the UK tour of Million Dollar Quartet and The Child Catcher in the UK tour of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. He is one quarter of the band Spandau Ballet, and his book, True – An Autobiography of Martin Kemp, spent several months in The Sunday Times best sellers list.
Prior to London, Peter Pan An Arena Spectacular will appear at the Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham from 20 to 24 December 2017.
