The Royal Hippodrome Eastbourne is to host a new musical over the October Half term holiday.
Produced by Visiting Company, Make Believe Productions, The Return of Neverland takes the familiar characters of Peter Pan and takes us 30 years into the future from where the traditional story ends.
Peter Pan and Tinkerbell are struggling to keep the spirit of Neverland alive. Over the past thirty years, the magic in Neverland has rapidly decreased, leaving Peter Pan and The Lost Boys grounded and Captain Hook and his crew docked. With nothing to fight for and no adventures to be had, Neverland has come to a standstill with no hope of a revival - or is there? With a little manipulation, a secret is revealed that may not only save the island but create more power than Neverland has ever seen before. Will it end up in the right hands? Or will this be the end of Neverland for good? With twists in the tales and shocking revealing’s, Neverland is about to have its first adventure in years!
Inspired by the original JM Barrie characters, Joshua Davies and Josephine Sherlock have created a story that has been described as ‘well thought out’ and ‘well written’ with a production that is flawless and smooth. Audiences can expect to be blown away by the apocalyptic harmonies sung in this “well performed” musical.
So, whether you are fans of Peter Pan and the magical world or Neverland, or whether you are just a lover of musicals, you don’t want to miss this opportunity to see something new and fresh but yet familiar that it will be enjoyed by all.
