The Hexagon in Reading are delighted to announce that children’s TV megastar Justin Fletcher will be returning to star in their spectacular family pantomime Peter Pan.
The local star is known to millions of children all over the world for his award winning television shows including Justin’s House, Gigglebiz and Something Special, starring Mr Tumble.
This will be Justin’s sixth panto at The Hexagon as he takes on the role of hapless trainee pirate Mr Smee in a special panto version of the popular children’s classic written by BAFTA Award winning writer Will Brenton.
Steve Boden, who regularly directs The Hexagon panto as well as being Managing Director of Imagine Theatre who produce the panto says “We are delighted to be working with Justin once again. He is such a natural talent with a genuine love of performing, particularly of the sort of slapstick humour that is part and parcel of panto.”
Justin’s love of slap stick humour comes from being a huge fan of legendary duo Laurel and Hardy since the age of five and as regular panto-goers at The Hexagon will know, he is never shy of taking a custard pie in the face during a show!
Life as one of the most popular figures in children’s television is always hectic. Before spending Christmas in Snow White at the Hexagon, Justin took on a different role, that of Mr Perks in the West End production of The Railway Children at the King’s Cross Theatre. Following on from panto Justin is currently starring in a UK wide tour of Justin’s Party – all of this in addition to his myriad of filming commitments with the BBC.
Don’t miss out on your chance to see Justin in Peter Pan this Christmas. The show runs from Saturday 9 December 2017 until Sunday 7 January 2018 and tickets are already ‘flying’ out of the door!
