Children are invited to join the Christmas Adventures of Peter Pan and the Pirates on Santa’s Island at the Barn Theatre in the PE Opera House from Wednesday December 5 to Saturday December 8.

Director Marlene Pieterses promises that the children’s show will include dancing, singing and plenty of audience participation.

They will meet Montgomery, Father Christmas’ island manager and the problems he is having with the disappearance of special gifts from Santa’s tree and discover that the most loveable of all on the island could be the culprit, but it’s up to the children to help solve this mystery.

The bad, really bad Captain Hook and his pirates are on the island but nobody knows where to find them.

Peter Pan and Tinkelbell come to hear about this and decide to join Montgomery, Octavia the Octopus, Sebastian the Crab, Flounder the Guppy, Ariel and Little Mermaid, Pippa the Golden Penguin and Tommy Tuna to search for Captain Hook.
