THE magic of boyhood dreams, pirate ships and Neverland will be brought to Lowestoft this winter as the Marina Theatre and UK Productions present Peter Pan the pantomime.

The star-studded, swashbuckling show will feature many familiar actors who will be gracing the docks of Heritage Quay next week during the show's official launch.

Emmerdale actor Ken Farrington will be playing the role of the villainous Captain Crook and can be spotted aboard the historic Excelsior ship on Monday, alongside his fellow co-stars.

Jamie Rickers, the popular host of CITV's Toonattik plays the role of Smee and will be donning his costume for the launch, as will Hollyoaks actress Sarah Jane Buckley who plays the role of Mrs Darling.

With its wide range of recognisable television faces, the show promises to be a success and will be the first professional pantomime to be performed in Lowestoft in the last 50 years.

Peter Pan marks a dramatic turnaround in the fortunes of the Marina Theatre, which has successfully managed to treble its audience figures in recent years.

The pantomime will premiere on December 11 and will run into the New Year.

Tickets are already on sale, starting at £5, with concessions available for over-60s, children and students.

Family tickets, party and school rates are also available, with a

sign language-interpreted performance on December 30.

For more information or to book tickets call the box office on 01592 533200 or visit www.marinatheatre.co.uk
