Come, Fly away

Come, Fly away

This year Pantoni Pantomime and Yeovil's Octagon Theatre present the classic <br/><br/>Peter Pan, a magical pantomime for all the family to enjoy

Peter Pan is the enchanting tale of the boy who never grew up. In Edwardian London Wendy Darling tells bedtime stories to her brothers, Michael and John, of swashbuckling swordplay with the formidable pirate leader Captain Hook and the heroics of the playful Peter Pan. But the children become the heroes of an even greater story when Peter Pan flies into their nursery one night and leads them over moonlit rooftops to the lush jungles of the mysterious kingdom of Neverland. Wendy and her brothers join Peter and his friends, the Lost Boys, in an exhilarating life, free of grown-up rules, while also facing the inevitable showdown with Hook and his pirates.
Fly with the Octagon to Neverland in this fantastic family adventure, packed full of magic and mayhem. This years traditional pantomime at Yeovils Octagon Theatre will also be full of music and dance, fun and laughter, with fabulous costumes and lavish sets.
The world-famous, chart-topping Bob the Builder and lead singer of the Honeyz, Celena Cherry, will join pantomime favourite Greg Patmore and Mike Carnell in the Octagon Theatres magical 2010 pantomime Peter Pan.

The Octagon Theatre and Pantoni Pantomime promise a truly magical production of Peter Pan. Panto-goers, both young and young at heart, can look forward to a pantomime packed with comedy, slapstick, singing, dancing, beautiful costumes and plenty of audience participation. Peter Pan proved to be a runaway success when it last played the Octagon Theatre over 10 years ago, and it returns to spread magic across the region this Christmas from Saturday 11 December to Sunday 2 January.
Much loved for his long-running Childrens TV show, Bob the Builder will bring happiness to the children of Neverland. Known not only from his childrens show, Bob has also topped the charts twice and his two singles both became gold in a matter of days. Released in 2000, Can We Fix It? went to number 1 in the UK and US Charts and only a year later he did the same with his hit cover of Mambo No 5.
Celena Cherry, lead singer of the girl group The Honeyz, rose to fame in 1998 when their debut single Finally Found reached number four in the UK charts and stayed in the charts for a further 10 weeks. Similar success followed for their next four singles and led to a platinum selling UK album and hits all over the world.
Adam Burgan, Theatre Manager, said, We are so pleased to have these names come to the Octagon. Our spectacular pantomime, Peter Pan, will soar to new heights and will be packed with music, laughter, magic and fun!
