All children, except one, grow up...

When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow, headstrong Wendy helps him to reattach it. In return, she is invited to Neverland, where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook await. A riot of magic, music and make-believe ensues.

A delight for children and adults alike, Sally Cookson (NT Live: Jane Eyre) directs this wondrously inventive production, a co-production with Bristol Old Vic theatre. Suitable for age 7yrs+






5 stars*****"Spellbindingly imaginative. An edgy and dazzling production that lights up the National Theatre "Radio Times
4 star **** "An awfully big adventure. Sally Cookson’s production is a wonder, ticks all the Christmas boxes for adults and children "The Times

From internationally renowned writer director Ben Elton comes Three Summers, an ensemble comedy that embraces the diversity of modern Australia. At a summer music festival, the feisty lead singer of an Irish folk band (REBECCA BREEDS) meets a folkmusic-hating Theremin player (ROBERT SHEEHAN) and sparks literally fly. 

Characters surrounding this awkward romance include a fiercely Aussie Morris Dancer (Michael Caton), an Indigenous dance troupe, a group of wine-loving empty nesters, a power tripping security guard, a wannabe girl rock band and some musical asylum seekers. 

In fact, all manner of stories collide under the meddling eye of community radio super star, Queenie (Magda Szubanski), who welcomes the campers back three summers in a row for a folking good time.
