Northampton’s Royal & Derngate has announced that comedian, television presenter and all-round entertainer Joe Pasquale will lead the cast in Northampton’s premier pantomime Peter Pan, in the role of Smee.
Joe Pasquale has established himself as one of the country’s best-loved personalities and top-selling live comedians in British comedy today. Joe has been delighting audiences for more than 20 years with his live stand-up tours and infectious sense of fun. Along the way he has voiced characters for Hollywood movies Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties and Horton Hears A Who!, toured in several major theatrical productions including Mel Brooks’ The Producers, been crowned King of the Jungle in ITV’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me out Of Here; appeared in five Royal Variety Performances and even learned to skate for ITV1’s Dancing On Ice - no mean feat!
Michael Harrison, Managing Director of Qdos Entertainment’s pantomime division and Executive Producer of Peter Pan, said: “We are thrilled that Joe Pasquale, who has smashed pantomime box office records wherever he has performed, will be leading the cast of Royal & Derngate’s pantomime. Joe’s high-energy comedy, along with a superb cast, means that audiences will be hooked during this production of Peter Pan. It will be without a doubt one of the most impressive pantomimes ever staged in Northampton.”
Martin Sutherland, Chief Executive of Royal & Derngate, added: “We’re delighted to have Joe coming to Northampton this Christmas. Peter Pan promises to be a real treat for all ages, with fun for all the family. We really look forward to Christmas when so many people get their first experience of live theatre through pantomime, and with tickets from just £9 it’s now more affordable than ever.”
There are more lower priced tickets available for the pantomime this year, with prices starting from just £9*, and concession prices now available for all performances, including Christmas Eve and Boxing Day. The minimum party size that can enjoy the great group discounts on offer has also gone down from ten to just eight. In addition, anyone booking before 1 August can save an extra £1 per ticket.
So join Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Wendy and the Lost Boys this Christmas on their swashbuckling adventure to save Neverland from the villainous Captain Hook, his bumbling sidekick Smee and their crew of dastardly pirates.
Peter Pan is produced by Qdos Entertainment, the world’s largest pantomime producer and features an abundance of comedy, stunning sets and fabulous costumes, amazing flying sequences and a good helping of fairy dust!
Peter Pan will be captivating Northampton audiences from Friday 5 December 2014 to Sunday 4 January 2015. Tickets can be booked on 01604 624811 or online at www.royalandderngate.co.uk.
