Peter Pan does not fail to disappoint and is certainly fabulous.

The opening scenes had the audience in hysterics Joe Pasquale is hilarious self playing Smee.

The costumes are excellent and each one of Ceri Dupree’s costumes are astonishing.

Alex Giannini plays Captain Hook perfectly encouraging the audience to boo and hiss from the audience throughout.

The show is full of the usual pantomime moments ‘oh no he’s not’ ‘that way’ which the children in the audience love playing along with!

The special effects and magic used are great throughout, especially when the characters ‘fly’

One particular highlight is the crocodile scene which was fantastic.

The humour is really tongue in cheek and is great for both adults and children!

There are lots of local references to things throughout the county which were very clever and funny!

Both 8-year-olds I took where both in fits of giggles throughout the performance and absolutely loved the show.

A feel good family show, I would defiantly recommend going to see Peter Pan.

The show runs until Sunday January 4. For tickets call 01604 624811.
