Peter Pan 

Presented by arrangement with Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity and Samuel French Limited.

A professional production of Peter Pan, inspired by J.M. Barrie’s novel, produced by Peterborough based theatre company Lamphouse Theatre. 

The Darling family’s life is changed forever when Peter Pan, the boy who wouldn't grow up, appears at their window one night. Wendy, John and Michael follow Peter to Neverland, meeting Lost Boys, mermaids and crocodiles along the way! But will their adventure be sabotaged by Captain Hook or can they outwit his nasty pirate crew and save Neverland?

Jam-packed with live music, humour, adventure and energy. The production will appeal to both boys and girls and discusses important morals; family, responsibility, friendship, bravery, trust and ambition.

Lamphouse Theatre is a Peterborough based theatre company committed to telling epic stories in intimate settings, packed with live music, comedy and spontaneity. They perform with a playful mischief and create events accessible to all. Find out more about the company here: www.lamphousetheatre.co.uk

Peter Pan at The Place in Bedford was, simply, outstanding. Physical, dynamic, very funny, fresh and imaginative - I brought along my five-year-old twins (one of which has Asperger's) and they were captivated. The cast dealt so well with my son heckling one of the actors: he often feels that performers are talking only to him and when he realises his mistake a meltdown can ensue, but the skillful riffing from his outburst made him feel part of the action and as a result he sat with his uncomfy feelings rather than let them overwhelm him.

We shall be looking out for your future work and will make every effort to attend: can't wait to see what you tackle next and to enjoy your splendid energy, charm and charisma once again.

Wow!!! It was absolutely wonderful. So funny and ever so well done with just a cast of 3. I have never laughed so much in my life. All my family enjoyed it including my two girls aged 12 and 9. I would defiantly recommend watching this performance and will be looking out for more in the future. The cast were fabulous and the improv was so funny. It was a pleasure to watch and the best pantomime so far. Well done guys!

Absolutely outstanding show in terms of energy, creativity and fun. The laughter flowed in equal amounts from adults as well as children. Had to go down and shake their hands at the end of the show. Loved them so much - will keep an eye out for future performances.
