A SPECIAL treat is in store for Capetonians, as the much-loved story of Peter Pan will be on stage at the Canal Walk Winter Theatre taking place between 25 June and 17 July. This marks a welcome return of the centre’s annual children’s theatre run. In this 2022 musical adaption of JM Barrie’s classic tale, Peter, Tinkerbell, and Wendy Darling, along with Captain Hook and his faithful sidekick, Smee, will ferry audiences to Never Land to be amazed by all its wonders.
Produced by Fred Abrahamse and Marcel Meyer, expect appearances from a series of Never Land characters that include, mysterious mermaids from Mermaid Lagoon; the beautiful Princess Tiger Lilly and her brave, Panther; the high-spirited Lost Boys and Hook’s band of pirates aboard the Jolly Roger; and of course, the crocodile, whose taste for time pieces (clocks and watches) is now legendary. Also joining the cast will be a gathering of life-sized puppets who add yet another fun dimension to this spectacular performance.
In keeping with the tradition of both the author of the novel, who regularly donated profits to worthy causes, and Canal Walk’s track record for contributing to charitable endeavours, the retail giant will be supporting CHOC (Childhood Cancer Foundation South Africa), during this 2022 production of the stage show with R5 of every ticket sold being donated to this amazing institution.
Make a date to escape to Never Land by booking tickets through Webtickets or at the ticket box office at the venue. Audiences are also encouraged to dress up as part of the festivities.
