About Peter Pan
Peter Pan is this year’s Gaiety Christmas Panto
This is no ordinary panto, it’s the Gaiety Panto!
For the first time ever at the iconic Dublin theatre, soar to Neverland with Tinkerbell, Wendy, Captain Hook, Smee, Nana and all the crew at this year’s panto – Peter Pan!
Wendy Darling tells bedtime stories to her brothers John and Michael of swashbuckling swordplay with the formidable pirate leader Captain Hook, and the heroics of the playful Peter Pan. The Darling children soon become the heroes of an even greater story when Peter Pan himself flies into their nursery one night and leads them over moonlit rooftops to the mysterious kingdom of Neverland!
From the Lost Boys and the Piccaninny Tribe, to the Magical Mermaids and the Ticking Crocodile, Wendy and her brothers join Peter in an exhilarating life, free of grown-up rules, while also facing the inevitable showdown with Hook and his pirates.
This Christmas, The Gaiety Panto will give this timeless tale its familiar lavish and fun-loving touch. The Gaiety Theatre has hosted the annual Christmas Panto each year since 1873 and for the past 141 years has given the people of Dublin opera, musicals, drama, revues, comedy, concerts, dance, festival and pantomime. Today, families come from far and wide to the Gaiety Christmas Panto and for many it has become a true Christmas tradition.
