Mercury Theatre has announced The New Adventures of Peter Pan as its new pantomime for 2024.

Running 23 November 2024 – 19 January 2025, the pantomime will be written by Andrew Pollard and directed by and starring “the best Dame in the country” (British Theatre) Antony Stuart-Hicks as Mrs Smee.

Mercury pantomime legend, Dale Superville (recently announced in the West End cast of Fawlty Towers) also returns as Smee.

Neverland is in chaos! The dastardly and devilish Captain Hook is back and seeking vengeance… With Peter Pan and the lost children in mortal danger Tinkerbell heads back to Colchester to get help. On arrival she realises many years have passed, and she must now convince Wendy’s granddaughter, to travel to Neverland and help save the infamous Peter Pan from certain death.

Will they make it back in time? Will Peter Pan conquer Hook once and for all? And…what’s that ticking sound? Join us this festive season to find out!

Stuart-Hicks said, “Join us for Colchester’s favourite pantomime this Christmas as Neverland bursts to life in a spectacular production that’s fun for the whole family. The New Adventures of Peter Pan promises to be an awe-inspiring spectacle with the perfect blend of breath-taking sets & costumes, mind-blowing flying and effects, side-splitting comedy and of course the usual warning applies… I will very much be in it!”

There will be a range of accessible shows throughout the run including relaxed, audio described, captioned and BSL interpreted performances. The theatre will also bring back their popular 18+ adults only performances with seven shows held in January.
