Preview: Peter Pan at Seaton Deleval Arts Centre
Seaton Deleval Arts Centre
Saturday 7th March 2015
A modern twist on the classic tale of Peter Pan comes to Seaton Delaval this month presented by Duckegg Theatre Company, a Social Enterprise with its roots in North Lincolnshire, dedicated to the creation of brand-spanking new writing with young people at its heart. Their family musical, ‘Peter Pan’, adapted from the J.M. Barrie classic by award winning playwright Haley Cox with music by Phil Collingwood, comes to the Seaton Delaval Arts Centre for two performances on Saturday 7thMarch. The production deals with themes of small town mentality, youth aspiration and the challenges of following your dreams, developed in workshop with 120 young people aged 12-19.
It’s five minutes until closing time at Priceland. Join A Level student and cashier Wendy Darling as she takes us into the timeless story of Peter Pan – second star to the left and straight on ’til morning! Throw in a misunderstood Captain Hook, a hot guitarist Peter Pan, a Tinker Bell straight out of ‘TOWIE’ and a sprinkle of fairy dust (oh, and an awesome soundtrack!) and you get a sparkling show guaranteed to get your toes tapping.
The cast merges four professional actors (including Newsrevue’s Sean Keating, ex ‘The Mousetrap’ actress Eve Pearson and Spotlight Award finalist James Mountain) with young people from Duckegg’s youth theatre. Young people are the company’s lifeblood and they rightfully place them at the heart of everything they do. The youth members are valued in every area of the company and have tangible input into the performance and touring work.
Peter Pan takes to the stage on Saturday 7th March at 1.00pm and 6.00pm. Tickets are priced at £8.00 with concessions at £7.00 and family tickets at £26.00 available from the Box Office on 0191 237 5460 or book online at www.seatondelavalartscentre.com
