Peter Pan – A Musical Adventure, featuring music and lyrics by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, will be presented live in concert at London’s Adelphi Theatre on 25 October for a matinee and evening performance.
Producers Ollie Rosenblatt (for Senbla Ltd) and Elliot Davis said; “We are so proud to present Peter Pan as art of the Musicals in Concert Series, building on the previous success of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Of Thee I Sing which plays the Festival Hall at the end of July. Peter Pan is a timeless classic and the score penned by Stiles and Drewe, along with a Willis Hall script, is a delight which works so wonderfully well in concert format.”
George Stiles and Anthony Drewe said: “Our score for Peter Pan began life in a London concert performance, so we’re delighted that audiences at the beautiful Adelphi Theatre will once again have the chance to be whisked off to Neverland by a brilliant cast and thrilling orchestra.”
Based on J.M. Barrie’s classic, featuring the mischievous Lost Boys and the villainous Captain Hook, the production has music and lyrics by the Olivier Award-winning duo Stiles and Drewe (Honk!, Mary Poppins, Betty Blue Eyes, Soho Cinders) and a book by Willis Hall.
The cast is to be announced shortly.
