Waylon Jacobs to star in a new adaptation of Peter Pan at The Barn Theatre

Waylon Jacobs is to star in a new adaptation of Peter Pan at The Barn Theatre.

Waylon Jacobs (Hamilton, Memphis, The Last Five Years) will star in the title role of the world premiere of Alan Pollock’s new adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s classic story Peter Pan.

The production, conceived and directed by Kirk Jameson, follows a man determined not to miss bedtime, so he recreates his daughter’s favourite bedtime story in a hotel room three thousand miles from home.

Waylon Jacobs, who most recognised for being part of the original West End cast of the Olivier and Tony award-winning musical Hamilton, was most recently seen in this summer’s outdoor revival production of Jason Robert Brown’s The Last Five Years at Cornwall’s Minack Theatre.

Peter Pan runs at The Barn Theatre between November 21 to January 3.

Tickets and more information are available online here.

This will mark the second time Waylon Jacobs has worked with the theatre following his performance in the theatre’s recent virtual concert The Barn Presents: The Music of Dominic Powell which can be watched on the theatre’s YouTube channel.

The production features original music and arrangements by Nick Barstow (Rags, Just So), movement direction by Tosh Wanogho-Maud and set and costume design by Gregor Donnelly.

The show forms part of The Barn Theatre’s Recovery season together with a new revivalof Stephen Sondheim musical Marry Me A Little starring Rob Houchen and Celinde Schoenmaker, the currently running Private Peaceful and previously announced digital production of What A Carve Up!
