★★★★ Bristol Post

★★★★ “Jon Monie is the consummate panto pro … Paul Nicholas positively oozes with gleeful malice, and seemed to be having far more fun in the role than a working gent has a right to expect…  With colourful sets and costumes, songs, dancing, flying and someone to boo with glee what more could you want from a panto?” StageTalk Magazine

“Paul Nicholas’ beautiful speaking voice adding to Hook’s wicked appeal … rubber-faced and rolling-eyed Jon Monie, as hilariously appealing as ever, delivering topical lines and fresh routines with his signa­ture self-deprecating charm, and re­t­urning to old favorites with perfect timing.” Fine Times Recorder

★★★★ “Well done to Bath Theatre Royal, UK Productions and Jon Monie for creating such a strong panto tradition and ensuring that families return year after year.” Sardines Magazine

One of the UK’s best-loved actors, PAUL NICHOLAS (EastEnders, The Real Marigold Hotel, Just Good Friends)  takes centre stage as Captain Hook alongside Bath favourite JON MONIE, who plays Hook’s right-hand-man Smee, REBECCA WHEATLEY from Casualty as Mrs. Darling, TIM EDWARDS as Peter Pan, comedy acrobats The Nitwits as Hook’s hapless pirate crew, and dancers from Bath’s Dorothy Coleborn School of Dance, in this year’s family pantomime.

Peter Pan is a swash-buckling and unmissable Christmas treat that’s got everything – with flying, CGI special effects and all the traditional ingredients that make Bath pantomimes so special.

J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan is one of the best-loved stories in childrens’ literature. When Peter Pan flies into the Darling children’s nursery one night and takes them off to Neverland, a thrilling adventure begins… come with us to the magical world of Tinker Bell, Tiger Lily and the Lost Boys, where they do battle with the dastardly Captain Hook and his pirate crew.

He then played the title role in the original London production of Jesus Christ Superstar, co-starred with Elaine Paige in the first West End production of Grease.
