The Victoria Theatre in Halifax are delighted to announce that they are fully cast for their spectacular family panto Peter Pan and recently the panto mayhem begin when the cast got together for the photo shoot.
As previously announced Halifax’s favourite comic Neil Hurst returns to play trainee pirate Smee and he will be joined by some new faces with Max Cane donning a dress as Nanny McSmee, Kieran Morris as Peter Pan, Lucy Keirl as Tiger Lily and Katie Faye as Wendy. These will be joined by Anna Lakin who will take on the role of Tinker Bell this year, having appeared in the ensemble for the last two seasons, and Andrew Piper who returns to the venue he played Beast in back in 2012 as the fearsome Captain Hook
Kieran is delighted to be reprising the role he played at Eden Court in 2015. “I love playing Peter as he is quite a complex character. He is brave and he is caring as well as being selfish and reckless at times. I also love getting to fly – it is quite nerve racking the first few times but great fun once you get the hang of it.”
Max has worked in entertainment for a number of years. He has appeared in many popular television shows including The Bill, EastEnders, Wire in the Blood, New Tricks and The Last Detective amongst many others. He has also appeared in the West End in Stephen Sondheim’s A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum at the Piccadilly Theatre and starred in numerous productions at Chichester Festival Theatre as well as playing dame in pantomime.
Andrew Piper is relishing the prospect of playing a baddie and says “I am very excited to be playing Hook as he is one of the most iconic baddies in children’s literature. I also get to have a sword which I can’t wait for!”
Stephen Boden, Managing Director of Imagine Theatre who produce the panto says “This is only the second year we have ever put on Peter Pan and I am thrilled to have such a fabulous cast for its Halifax debut.”
Come and join us for an adventure in Neverland. Peter Pan runs from Saturday 10th December 2016 until Monday 2nd January 2017.
