The cast for Peter Pan announced!

The cast of this year’s Lyceum pantomime, Peter Pan, has been announced.

Set to take flight in this years’ panto spectacular are Shaun Williamson (Eastenders) as Captain Hook, the returning Wendi Peters, who last appeared in 2016’s Snow White as the Evil Queen, as Mrs Darling and everyone’s favourite Dame, Damian Williams, who will return for his 11th year at the Lyceum, this time as Mrs Smee, along with children’s favourites Gemma Hunt (Cbeebies’ Swashbuckle) as Tiger Lily and David Ribi (Milkshake) as Peter Pan.

The cast is completed by Jo Osmond (Doctor Who) as Tinkerbell and Samantha Dorrance (Disney Channel’s Dance Along) as Wendy.

Sheffield Theatres is also delighted to announce that Peter Pan will be sponsored by Yorkshire-based online banking service, first direct.

The show will once again be written by Paul Hendy, and produced by the same team who brought the 'Pantomime of the Year 2017/18’ [The Great British Pantomime Awards], Mother Goose to the Lyceum last year. Expect big laughs, bigger costumes and spectacular special effects in the biggest panto yet!
