It’s an awfully big adventure

Ilkeston Theatre Company’s latest production - Peter Pan - takes to the skies this week.

Peter Pan is to be performed in the large marquee at Seven Oaks Inn, Lows Lane, Stanton-by-Dale.

Based on the classic book, this version has many familiar characters and sees Peter Pan (played by Rachael Flewitt) and his companion Tinkerbell (Louise Bradley) transporting Wendy (newcomer Penny Courtney) and her brothers to Neverland.

Here they meet the lost boys, Myrtle the mermaid (Jenni Walker), Tiger Lily and her friends. However, Peter is being pursued by the wicked Captain Hook (played with relish by Ben Mills), who is not as “armless” as he first appears.

Fortunately for our hero, there is a hungry crocodile keen to turn Captain Hook into a light snack.

Will Captain Hook succeed in his plans for Peter, or will the crocodile manage to disarm him?
