Peter Pan Pantomime, New Wimbledon Theatre with New Zealand's Jarred Christmas
Whisk yourselves away to Neverland in an enchanting and timeless tale at New Wimbledon Theatre this Christmas, with Hollywood star Verne Troyer, comedians Marcus Brigstocke and Jarred Christmas plus dance troupe Flawless.
Best known for his role as Mini-Me in Austin Powers, Verne Troyer has become a regular on British TV with appearances on Celebrity Big Brother, The Jonathan Ross Show and Celebrity Juice. Standing at a mere 2ft 8 inches, he will be the shortest actor ever to appear in British pantomime. Also making a panto debut as Captain Hook is Marcus Brigstocke, one of Britain's finest comedians and broadcasters. An award winning international comedian, his theatre credits also include Spamalot and The Railway Children.
Joining Verne and Marcus are Flawless - making a very welcome return after their review-stealing performance in Aladdin – and funny man Jarred Christmas, providing the laughs as hapless side-kick, Smee. Jarred has regularly appeared on TV shows Mock the Week, Nevermind the Buzzcocks and Let’s Dance for Comic Relief.
Peter Pan is going to be a swashbuckling pantomime adventure for the whole family, complete with everything you would expect from the Home of London Pantomime - spectacle, surprise, magic and music, plus a big sprinkle of fairy-dust!
'There are few London theatres that throw as much at their annual show as New Wimbledon Theatre.'
'New Wimbledon Theatre is fast becoming the traditional home to London’s gaudiest, jolliest panto.'
'If it weren't for the tennis, Wimbledon would be known globally as the London Home of Panto.'
