We haven’t hit summer yet but tickets have officially gone on sale for Hull Truck Theatre’s Christmas show for 2019.
The Ferensway theatre has announced it will be bringing JM Barrie’s classic tale of the boy who wouldn’t grow up – Peter Pan – to the stage for Christmas.
Tickets for Peter Pan are on sale now, with performances running from November 29, 2019, to January 4, 2020.
A spokeswoman for the show said: “Join Wendy and Peter Pan for a magical family adventure in Neverland.
“One night, bedtime stories come alive for the Darling children when Peter Pan and fairy Tinker Bell guide them through the stars to a land of Lost Boys, Pirates and Mermaids.

“Time stands still as their action-packed adventure unfolds. Can they save Tiger Lily from the pirates? Will the fearsome Captain Hook finally have his revenge on Peter Pan, or will the ticking crocodile catch him first? And will Wendy stay to be the Lost Boys’ mother?
“With original music, singing, dancing, flying and a generous sprinkle of fairy dust, Peter Pan is a much-loved story for the child in all of us.
“Let your imagination fly at Hull Truck Theatre this Christmas.”
Early Bird rate and Pay What You Can night
Hull Truck Theatre are currently offering a special Early Bird Family and Friends rate.
Parties of four will get £3 off per full price ticket and must include at least one over 18 and one under 18.
This offer is available until September 30, 2019.
For the first performance of Peter Pan on November 29, tickets will be on a Pay What You Can basis.
Playwright Deborah McAndrew said: “Peter Pan is a story I have loved all my life. It’s quite dark in places, but also very funny. I have brought a lot of my own childhood to this Christmas adaptation for Hull. For me, it’s about imagination, and I hope that this show will be magical for children of all ages.”
Mark Babych, artistic director at Hull Truck Theatre, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Deborah again on this magical adaptation of Peter Pan.
“The story is well known and much loved by younger and older audiences alike – and we can’t wait to share our version on the Hull Truck Theatre stage.
“Christmas is a really important and special time for families and friends and it’s a pleasure to be involved with something which will create happy and long-lasting memories.
“Expect adventure, fun and a sprinkle of Christmas spirit.”
Casting is yet to be announced. Tickets cost from £10 to £26, with an age guidance of five years and over. Visit hulltruck.co.uk for more information.
