PETER PAN GOES WRONG
The Civic, Auckland, 31 October-18 November; The Opera House, Wellington, 21-25 November; Isaac Theatre Royal, Christchurch, 28 November-2 December
What better way to kick off the silly season than with a panto? Direct from London’s West End, this off-beat show turns JM Barrie’s classic into a clowning, comedy-filled disaster. Audience members become privy to the inner workings of the backstage crew with misplaced props, collapsing sets and missed cues as Pan, Hook, the Darlings and Tinker Bell romp around Neverland. Inevitably, it’s trouble galore.
