Written by J.M.Barrie, Peter Pan is a much loved story about a mischievous young boy who can fly and never grows up and this Christmas it’s part of BBC’s festive line up.
However this version might not be what you expect as, for the first time, Mischief Theatre’s Peter Pan Goes Wrong is to be broadcast on BBC1 this Christmas.
Shane Allen, Controller Comedy Commissioning, comments: “This word-of-mouth phenomenon is an absolute riot which plays to all ages and hits the sweet spot for the BBC One family audience.”
Chris Sussman, Head of Comedy, BBC Studios, says: “Peter Pan Goes Wrong was one of the funniest shows I’ve ever seen in the theatre, and I’m thrilled we’ve got the chance to bring it to BBC One. Terrifying stunts, a revolving stage and a cast who’ve never done TV before. What could possibly go wrong?”
Mischief Theatre adds: “We are delighted to be bringing the mishaps of The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’s production of Peter Pan Goes Wrong to BBC One this Christmas. We are quite staggered at the success of the simply disastrous stage shows this company keeps putting on and hope that their attempt at television doesn’t ruin the nation’s festive cheer!”
You can expect hilarious stunts, flying mishaps, cast disputes on the way to Neverland and what could possibly go wrong when Tinkerbell is due to light up the stage in a stunning electrical costume? This is a TV panto that will have the whole family rolling with laughter. Or if you prefer to see it live Peter Pan Goes Wrong is at the Apollo Theatre, London throughout December.
