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.
