The 2019 Helpmann Award nominations are out with nods to some of our favourite plays and musicals of this year.
You’re probably well acquainted with the story of Peter Pan by now – the mischievous boy who never wanted to grow up and his many adventures in Neverland.
But we’re certain you’ve never seen the story told quite like this.
From the brilliant (and slightly wobbly) team that brought us The Play That Goes Wrong last year, comes Peter Pan Goes Wrong – and if you like your theatre with a giant helping of gasp-inducing disaster on the side then this is the show for you.
From flying mishaps to set fails, and technical hitches to onstage cast disputes – we really aren’t sure if Peter Pan and his band of friends will ever actually make it to Neverland at all.
Some familiar faces from The Play That Goes Wrong will once again be bringing the Cornely Polytechnic Drama Society to life. Darcy Brown, Francine Cain, Adam Dunn, Luke Joslin, George Kemp, Jordan Prosser and Tammy Weller will be joined by fresh faces Jay Laga’aia (of Star Wars, Play School and Home and Away fame), Connor Crawford, and Teagan Wouters.
You can’t have misadventure without a little adventure, and Peter Pan Goes Wrong is set to deliver both in spades.
Prepare your laughs when Peter Pan Goes Wrong opens at Arts Centre Melbourne on Wednesday 19 December, before heading to Sydney Lyric Theatre from Wednesday 13 February. Book now at Ticketmaster.com.au.
