Paul Nicholas as Captain Hook
Peter Pan in Plymouth
Paul Nicholas stars in Plymouth Theatre Royal's 2007 Christmas panto, Peter Pan.
Paul Nicholas takes on the role of Captain Hook in this year's swashbuckling pantomime, Peter Pan, at the Theatre Royal in Plymouth.
Thwarting his every dastardly move is Kerris Peeling in the role of Peter Pan, and rising comedy star, Matt Slack, as Smee.
Children's favourite, Emu, will create mayhem with his new partner, Toby Hull (son of Rod Hull). Toby Hull and Emu play parts in Captain Hook's pirate gang, along with the stunt troupe, The Acromaniacs.
Kerris Peeling as Peter Pan
The story of Peter Pan is about a boy who never wants to grow up. He lives in Neverland with the Lost Boys who fell out of their prams when they were young.
But he comes to listen outside the nursery window when bed-time stories are being told to Wendy, John and Michael Darling, so that he can repeat them to the Lost Boys.
One night, Peter flies into the nursery to search for his shadow. Wendy sews it on for him and then Peter teaches all three children to fly and takes them to Neverland.
But Peter's fairy friend Tinkerbell is jealous of Wendy.
And then a gang of pirates, headed by Captain Hook, appear on the scene.
Staged by the same team that presented last year's record-breaking pantomime, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Peter Pan features stunning sets and costumes, plus loads of laughs.
