Performances will begin at the Troubadour White City Theatre on 20th July and run through until 27th October.
Visiting schools with ten or more pupils will receive a special rate to the show, valid Monday to Friday.
About the production
When leader of the Lost Boys, Peter Pan loses his shadow during a visit to London, headstrong Wendy helps him re-attach it. In return she is invited to Neverland – where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook await.
Full of magic, mischief, music and make-believe, Sally Cookson’s inventive Peter Pan is a “funny and moving version of a much-loved story for audiences of all ages”.
The show was first seen at Bristol Old Vic and reconceived at the National Theatre in 2016, featuring innovative aerial acrobatics and live music from an on-stage band.
Peter Pan is a National Theatre co-production with Bristol Old Vic and is directed by Sally Cookson (Jane Eyre, A Monster Calls).
